What is the purpose of using whipped cream vs. heavy whipping cream and then baking? Does it come out with a different texture? I've never seen anyone cook already-whipped cream before, I would think that the heat would break down the matrix of bubbles that give whipped cream its body and end up just being regular whipping cream.

WOW! Sounds like a baked version of Greek Lemon Soup (another one of my favorite soups). Have you tried subbing anything more "heart friendly" in place of the whipped cream (greek yogurt, 2% evaporated milk that was frozen and then whipped), or ? don't know, a white sauce made with skim milk and thickened with some flour? And, that would be about the amount of fresh lemon juice I would put in a pot of Greek Lemon Soup. I guess it depends on how lemony a person wants it, but I like my GLS lemony, so I'd probably want this lemony. I C&P'd this, although chicken is one of those things I'm not as fond of eating now that I have hens!

Alix--are you on a lemon kick today--first Lemon Cake, now Lemon Chicken...I'm guessing green beans with lemon butter, or a tossed salad with lemon, EVOO, and S&P rounds out the meal? Or did I miss the next GCC challenge and lemons are the ingredient?

I have some lemons to get rid of so I'm working on ways to do that.

And nope, we don't make this any more heart friendly. If we're going to sin, we sin big!

As to the purpose of using whipped cream, I can't tell you why. The original recipe specified it that way, and although I've done it both ways, the whipped cream is different. It doesn't retain all its fluffiness, but its not heavy either. I've modified this recipe so much I will have to go find it in my archives to see if there is an answer to why whipped cream.

Don't ever sacrifice flavor in your recipes for something more healthy if that's not your goal. Let others modify it to suit their dietary needs!

Yep. I make lots of heart healthy meals, most of the time as a matter of fact. I like to do it up right once in a while. I make a chicken lasagna that could stop your heart too!

My youngest daughter LOVES this dish. She has always been painfully skinny (I think she runs too fast for any calories to stick to her) and she gobbles this like there is no tomorrow.
