This recipe has my favorite flavors; lemon
and cream. They always make a lick your
plate clean sauce for chicken.
I use 3 large boneless breasts that I cut
in half lengthwise and pounded slightly for
an even thickness. You can use 4 smaller
breasts too. Keep the other ingredients
the same so you'll have plenty of sauce...
Gather all the ingredients.
Saute' the mushrooms in 3 T butter.
Meanwhile, coat the chicken breasts
in flour, shaking off excess. Season
Then remove them to a plate.
Add the remaining 3 T butter to the pan.
Saute the floured and seasoned chicken
about 5 minutes per side until golden brown.
Add the broth to the skillet, stirring to loosen
all the browned bits. Simmer to reduce slightly.
Stir in the cream and lemon juice.
Cook until slightly thickened.
Season with white pepper and salt.
Return the mushrooms and chicken. Simmer
for 15 minutes to thicken the sauce.
Serve with rice or noodles and a fresh
