Chicken in Lemon Cream Sauce Recipe

Updated on September 15, 2014

I'm a huge fan of chicken & I can easily whip up lots of different dishes but this is hands down my favorite. My kids adore it & at this point it's better than anything I have ever eaten at a restaurant. The chicken comes out cooked perfectly & not overdone.

Because I'm in Missouri this recipe of course calls for Provel cheese....you aren't going to find this outside my area but it's essentially a mix of cheddar, swiss and provolone. Just buy those three shredded (or grate yourself) & mix them together. It's cool, that will be melted anyway.

This is a rich dish, you'll want some veggies or a light salad to go with it.

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 25 min
Yields: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon Vegetable oil
  • 4 ounces Provel cheese
  • 4 Boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 1/3 cups Heavy (40 percent) cream
  • 2 teaspoons Lemon juice, plus additional for seasoning
  • Dash Salt
  • Dash Pepper
  • Sprinkle Fresh Parsley
  • Several Lemon slices, to make it pretty

Instructions

  1. First you want to warm warm oil in a 10-12 inch nonstick skillet ( You'll need to use two of these to make 4 pieces) over medium-high heat; add chicken and brown lightly.
  2. Cook 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Then butterfly the chicken breast halves by cutting in half horizontally almost all the way through.
  3. Return them to the skillet, cut side down; cook 5 minutes more. (make sure it's cooked thru, thicker pieces may take a little longer)
  4. Turn off heat, drain any grease and top chicken with provel...now add a lid to help the cheese melt.
  5. Onto the sauce! Pour your cream into a deep skillet over medium-high heat. Then add 2 teaspoons lemon juice.
  6. Bring sauce to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, stirring occasionally.
  7. Do this until the cream reduces and thickens enough to heavily coat a spoon, about 5 minutes.
  8. Add in some salt, a little pepper and lemon juice to taste.
  9. When cheese has melted, transfer chicken to the plates, pour sauce over and garnish with parsley and pretty little lemon slices.
  10. Serve immediately to your drooling family
