Lemon Cream Chicken
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 45 min.
I have been making decadent dish this for well over 20 years. It’s my families favorite meal. I have over the years used light cream, half and half, even milk if I had to and it’s always gone! I don’t even need to look at the recipe anymore.
Everything was delicious. I used 2% evaporated milk instead of the heavy cream and it worked great. I would definitely double the sauce next time, however. I also needed to add just a little more lemon than recommended to make that flavor pop. A new family favorite!
This recipe is basically Chicken Francese with heavy cream added. I do NOT recommend this recipe. I am not a person who watches my fat intake but the amount of fat from the butter and heavy cream is just too much. I used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of heavy cream. This worked very well and doesn't take away anything except fat from the recipe. Also my husband and grown daughter said it was just okay. If I wanted this type of dish, chicken francese is lighter and much better. Also several reviews below say to double or even triple the sauce. Well I doubled it and it was much too much sauce so I do NOT recommend this.
Made this yesterday and absolutely love this recipe. I did use tenderloins in lieu of breast and zested the lemons and added the zest at the end. Served it over Brown Butter Orzo. Had a friend for lunch and she raved over it. Definitely a keeper recipe. p.s. I read the reviews and doubled the sauce and was happy I did that.
YUMMY! The cream against the citrus was a good contrast. My family said to triple the sauce. We used it with both rice and potato and enjoyed both.
Delicious! And so easy. Hubby loved it -- especially the sauce -- and wants it in our regular rotation.. Like others, I doubled the sauce. I usually do this anyway with most sauce or gravy recipes because I love having extra for noodles, etc. This is a keeper.

I haven't made this yet but i was wondering if i can use jarred mushrooms instead of fresh.

This is a lovely recipe, easy to make and quite tasty. It did not make near enough sauce and I had used less chicken. If you are going for a grave or pasta sauce I would recommend doubling the sauce portion.
