Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Add flour to a shallow bowl and lightly coat chicken on both sides with flour. Tap off excess. Repeat with remaining chicken and set aside.

To the same skillet, add the lemon slices and cook until they begin to brown and caramelize, about 1-2 minutes per side. Remove from pan, then add remaining 2 tbsp country crock. Once melted add onions and cook until they begin to soften, about 4-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, and add garlic. Cook for one more minute.
Raise heat to high and add white wine, scraping to deglaze the pan. Let reduce by half, then add chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and add reserved chicken and lemon slices. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until chicken is heated through.
Add lemon juice and parsley and serve.
Cook pasta according to the package directions, toss with 2 tbsp Country Crock, then add chicken and pan sauce on top.
