My family loves chicken. I love to make chicken because there are so many different ways to make it and because it’s delicious! I recently started making this amazing creamy lemon chicken recipe and it became a huge hit in our house. The lemon flavor isn’t overly strong and it makes a wonderful sauce that can be served over the chicken and either noodles, rice, and potatoes.

Lemon Chicken


Creamy Lemon Chicken

Cook Time: 30 minutes


  • 2-4 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup chicken broth (I use a bullion cube and a cup of water)
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 medium onion sliced in rings


  1. Combine flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder and the chicken breasts (2 at a time) in a large Ziploc bag.
  2. Shake ingredients in the bag to coat the chicken with the flour mixture.
  3. In a large, deep frying pan, brown the chicken in butter until both sides of chicken are browned.
  4. Add the chicken broth, lemon juice, cream and onions.
  5. Cover the pan and simmer for 30 minutes, until chicken is tender.
  6. When finished, add a bit of parsley and serve.

  1. This looks divine!!! I pinned it and hope to make it soon. Have you ever tried making it with whole or 2% milk and a bit more flour in the sauce? I would like to make a skinnier version, just because I wanna lose some of those holiday pounds! lol

    By the way, I read your about me. I’m also a Christian, so sister here! 🙂 God has definitely blessed you with strength. I rejoice that you’ve had the opportunity to raise that beautiful boy along with your husband. May God continue being your joy and strength through all of the challenges life may bring. Blessings!

    1. I did make it with whole or 2% (can’t remember which because we buy both), but did not do the more flour. It is a good idea though may have to try that next time!

      Thank you for your sweet comment! I definitely need to update my “about me” section especially since I just had another baby 8 weeks ago. 🙂 So nice to meet you and thanks for stopping by!
