  Chicken breasts 4 , split
  Salt 1 Teaspoon

Heat the butter in a large, heavy frying pan that has a cover and can be put under the broiler.
Saute the chicken pieces until lightly browned on both sides; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, combine the jelly, chicken broth, and lemon juice in a bowl and beat with a rotary beater until well blended.
Pour over the chicken; cover and reduce heat.
Simmer until the chicken is tender, about 25 minutes.

Set under the broiler, about 5 to 6 inches below heat, until the cheese melts and the top is golden brown
