Chicken Piccata

This is another recipe i got from a sister in-law. It is mouth watering. I didn't have mushrooms so i left those out, (I tend to leave alot of ingredients out of recipes lol)

4 chicken breasts cut into strips
1/2 cup flour
salt and pepper
4 slices swiss cheese
2 cups of chicken broth
1 package mushrooms
2 cloves of garlic
2 lemons
Fresh parsley

Dredge chicken into flour/salt and pepper mixture. Brown in a skillet until it is cooked through. In a separate pan...saute sliced mushrooms and minced garlic until brown and tender. Lay the swiss cheese over the chicken to melt. Pour chicken broth and lemon juice into the pan with the chicken. The cheese will sort of start to become part of the sauce. Add mushrooms and garlic to the skillet so you have one big mixture. Let simmer for 5 minutes until the sauce thickens.  If the sauce doesn't seem thick enough...sometimes I add a little cornstarch/water mixture to move things along. Add fresh chopped parsley and serve over white rice. Delicious!
