Herb-Crusted Chicken Piccata

What a speedy, delicious meal!

4 tablespoons Italian bread crumbs
1 teaspoon garlic powder
black pepper to taste
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, flattened evenly
1 tablespoon butter, divided
1/3 cup chicken broth
3 tablespoons lemon juice

On a dinner plate or pie plate, combine the bread crumbs, garlic powder, and pepper.
Dredge chicken in breadcrumb mixture and set aside.
In a skillet, melt half the butter over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook about 4 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from skillet when cooked and keep warm. Add broth, lemon juice, and remaining butter using a wire whisk to get everything up off the bottom. Cook 1 minute and spoon sauce over chicken.
