  • Place chicken between 2 sheets of heavy plastic on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound with the smooth side of a meat mallet to 1/4-inch thickness.

  • Place flour in a bowl. Beat eggs together in a separate bowl. Mix crushed oat cereal, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper together in large resealable plastic bag.

  • Dredge each chicken breast in flour and dip into eggs, allowing excess egg to drip back into bowl. Transfer coated chicken to cereal mixture; seal bag and shake until evenly coated. Place coated chicken on a plate and refrigerate for 1 hour.

  • Heat oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat; fry chicken until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a paper towel-lined plate and squeeze lemon over each.
