Lemon Cream Chicken

This recipe was incredible and so insanely tender and flavorful! It’s a great recipe for a crowd or even a Sunday lunch meal to prep before going to church and bake while you’re gone. Note that if you don’t want the sauce to be too lemony, just do 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Taste as you go! This chicken dish is paired really nicely with roasted potatoes or could be served over pasta or rice.
