I don’t know about you but during the heat of summer i just don’t want to spend a ton of time in the kitchen, but I still want to put delicious dinners on the table … well I have the perfect recipe for this summer, Skillet Lemon Chicken.
All in one skillet
Yes you read that right….the chicken and sauce are all made in one skillet, start to finish. The beauty of one skillet is that the flavors are going to build on one another without a lot of extra ingredients and there is one one pan to clean up at the end.
I am a big, big fan of only one pan to clean up…that gives me more time to spend with my family and friends.
Light but still rich
Even though this chicken is cooked in a cream sauce it is still light. The lemon really brightens up the sauce making it perfect for a quick summer dinner.
If you wanted you could add in some capers, mushrooms or veggies to make it even better.
And…it is pretty
Not only is this dish easy and perfect for summer but it is also perfect for entertaining. Once plated it looks like something that took hours to prepare but in reality you were done in less than 45 minutes.
Serve it with pasta, veggies, or your favorite potatoes…the possibilities are endless.
