Creamy Lemon Chicken

Chicken breasts
Chicken stock
Flour
Lemon juice
Parmesan cheese
Garlic
Salt and pepper
Whipped Cream (WITHOUT sugar!)

OK, brown your chicken breasts in a frying pan (garlic in here) and then transfer them to a greased, high sided casserole dish. Deglaze the pan with some chicken stock and some white wine if you have it. I shake a bunch of flour in a jar with some more stock (cold!) and then make a gravy with the stuff I just deglazed. Make it a bit thick. When this is bubbling nicely, stir in about 1/2 cup of lemon juice and a bunch of grated parmesan, maybe 1/2 cup. When thats all nicely blended together remove from the heat. Fold in your unsweetened whipped cream (somewhere between 1.5 and 2 cups worth) and then pour sauce over the chicken breasts. Sprinkle with dill and put in oven to bake for 45 minutes or so. Serve with pasta and a nice salad.

Can't wait to try this. Dad's on a diet so I'll have to wait until I get to London next week. Thanks Alix

Good idea abj, this one is an artery clogger for sure. Mighty tasty, but a wee bit caloric.

Wow! Half a cup of lemon juice! My brain is having trouble dealing with that when no shortbread or powdered sugar is involved.

That was an eyeball measurement. I've made it with as little as a couple of tablespoons. Its more about the creamy part and the parmesan cheese. I usually just pour in whatever amount of lemon juice is required to thin the sauce to the consistency I like.

I'll bet you could get by just tossing a lemon slice on each breast when it goes in the oven.
This sounds nice, Alix.
