Chicken Breasts in Lemon Cream Sauce

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.
Brown nicely. 
Meanwhile, coat the chicken breasts
in flour, shaking off excess. Season
with S&P. 
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
green vegetable.
