Creamy Lemon Chicken

Creamy Lemon Chicken that will make your mouth water as the zesty sauce combines harmoniously with the pan fried super thick and juicy chicken breast to make a creamy tang that will satisfy the most ambitious appetite. This meal is succulent, creamy, very comforting and pairs well with most any side. It is so easy to prepare which makes it perfect for a busy work/weekday schedule.  I don’t know about you but, I am all about the zest, whether its lemon or lime.  This creamy gravy that the chicken comes served with takes the food to another level. This is the kinda meal that when cooking, the aroma is so good that the neighbors will be wanting to stop by to see if you need any help with eating this masterpiece. You may need to have your favorite bread/roll handy so your family can wipe their plates clean as they devour a well prepared made form scratch home cooked juicy chicken entree.

I like to serve this with rice and keep the main dish in the middle of the table so the presentation has a feast like appeal and the experience is communal. This meal will please your sense of sight, taste and smell as you and your family bond over the days happenings while experiencing a quality meal together. I know we all remember our mothers and grandmothers’ kitchen as children and feeling safe and loved, by the work activities being undertaken to prepare a fabulous meal.  I take it upon myself to hold a place in my family’s memories that will show them how to love and be loved because, we take the time to break bread together while we enjoy the reward of our labor that comes from a place of love. As always; check out the video to see how easy this is to prepare and let me know what you think about this dish. Hope you are having a great day. Best wishes to all!
