Lemon Chicken Paillard

During my vacation to Paris, one item that could always be found on the menu was chicken paillard, or pounded chicken.  Because it was always on the menu, my family enjoyed it often, and each one I tried was one of my favorite meals.

If you read my tip from yesterday, (HERE), you don’t need any fancy tools for pounding your chicken.  Read below for an easy and tasty recipe!
