Bikini Operation French Lemon Chicken

Buonasera Ladies & Gents,

During the autumn Vendage ( Grape Harvest in French ) of 2011, The Vet and I had taken a long weekend trip to a few Rhône towns ... This lunch dish hails from one of those picturesque wine villages ... Note: I have employed fat reduced cream ... It is quite tasty ... Enjoy ...
