Ingredients:  
8 ounces angel hair pasta
1 pound chicken breasts, pounded to about 1/2 inch thick
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt or granulated garlic
1/4 cup flour

Directions:
Directions:
1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

2. Season chicken generously on both sides with salt, pepper, and garlic salt or granulated garlic. Then dredge chicken in flour until coated on all sides.

3. Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. When butter is hot and starts to turn brown, add the chicken and cook on each side, flipping once, until golden brown and chicken is cooked through, about 3-5 minuts per side. Remove the chicken to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.

4. In the same skillet, add the remaining butter. When melted and foamy, add the garlic and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the cream and bring to a simmer. Add the lemon juice and zest and whisk to combine. Add the Parmesan cheese and whisk until smooth and melted.

5. Add the chicken back to sauce and let simmer for about 3 minutes.

6. Plate the pasta and top with chicken and sauce. Garnish with extra Parmesan cheese and parsley if desired.

Claudia suggested we add some red pepper flakes the next time we make it to "spice it up" a little.
