  • Melt 3 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and saute until tender (or just cook the canned mushrooms a bit). Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.

    Sprinkle chicken with some salt & pepper, dredge in flour, shaking off excess. Melt remaining 3 Tbsp. butter in skillet. Add chicken and saute 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Transfer chicken to a plate and cover to keep it warm. Add chicken broth to skillet, scraping up browned bits. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until reduced to approximately 1 1/2 c. Stir in cream and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat until slightly thickened. Stir in mushrooms, white or black pepper, & add salt to taste if you like. Add chicken and simmer for another 15 minutes until sauce is medium thick consistency. Serve over rice or noodles (we prefer noodles.)

    Serves 6.

  • We JUST had this Sunday evening, and it's good! I ended up cutting the chicken breasts into smaller pieces so that they'd go farther.
    Chicken Breasts in Lemon Cream Sauce

    * 6 Tbsp. butter, divided
    * 12 oz. mushrooms sliced, or 12 oz. can mushroom pieces, drained
    * 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
    * Flour to dredge
    * 2 c. chicken broth
    * 2 c. heavy whipping cream (I used evaporated milk)
    * 6 Tbsp. lemon juice (fresh or bottled)
    * 1/2 tsp. white or black pepper

  • We added green beans and a salad to our meal to round it out, along with a chocolate cake. :-)

  • It's not super spicy. You can add more pepper if you like. The citrus tang isn't too strong, just pleasant. My picky eaters enjoyed it!

  • Super Easy (in case you need/want more in the future)

    1 pkg egg noodles, cooked
    1 (10 oz) can celery soup
    1.5 C mixed veggies
    .5 C milk
    1.5 C shredded cheese
    1 stalk celery, chopped
    .5 C mayo
    1 jar mushrooms
    4 cooked (boiled or grilled) chicken breasts, diced

    mix it all up, pour into a large casserole dish, top with more cheese, bake for 30 - 45 minutes @ 350*

    super easy with lots of room to improvise. i always like to add a small handful of spices, a different combination every time. have fun with it! =)
