This recipe gave me a chuckle. It says put the flour in a dish ... then never touch it again. So, am I to make the chicken while simply staring at the unused flour on the counter? Definitely confused.

Season the chicken with the lemon pepper then dredge in the flour. No staring involved, unless you want to. :-)
