Creamy Lemon Chicken











Make this for dinner tonight, you will be so pleased.

Creamy Lemon Chicken
Serves 4

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 lemons, juiced
1 cup cream
salt and pepper to taste
3 cups rice (your choice)

Heat oven to 350. Clean chicken, arrange in a baking dish, drizzle with olive oil and the juice of 1/2 lemon then season with salt and pepper. Bake for 30 minutes. While the chicken is baking, heat a medium skillet and melt butter until it starts to brown then add the garlic and saute for a moment. Add the juice of 1/2 lemon and simmer 1 minute. Add half of the cream and season with salt and pepper. Simmer another few minutes and add the remaining lemon juice. Combine well and add remaining cream. Season once more, with more salt and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cook your choice of rice. Remove chicken from oven and allow to rest 5 minutes while you prepare plates.

Divide rice among four warmed plates, place chicken on top of rice and generously pour sauce over each serving.
