Creamy Lemon Chicken Recipe

0 comments

This creamy lemon chicken recipe is so easy to make you can’t go wrong with it. After making this recipe, it quickly became one of my favourites as it always leaves me wanting more. The tender, juicy chicken with a golden colour is just the perfect menu for a relaxed weekend dinner. The heavy cream lemon sauce adds such a rich tangy flavour to the chicken. This recipe doesn’t need any special ingredients; however, it still is one of the best and quickest ways to cook a flavorful chicken dish. You only need a pan and some common ingredients that you will definitely find in your kitchen.

You can have this creamy lemon chicken alongside some roast vegetables, or if you’re not on a keto diet, you can have rice, pasta or some mashed potatoes. I usually have some roasted veggies as they go well with the aromatic herbs in this recipe.

For this recipe, I used chicken breasts; however, you can use any other part of the chicken, preferably a boneless part as is easier to cook and absorb the sauce.
