Awesome Lemon Cream Sauce w/Parmesan & Basil

I worked on this for a bit of time... I wanted a sauce that was flavorful, but didn't overwhelm the dining experience. This sauce is packed with flavor but allows the flavors of the other parts of the meal to come through... It compliments; not overpowers.

Drizzle this sauce on pork, chicken or fish… Use it as a dip for veggies… Put it on the back of you hand and lick it off. This is one yummy sauce, and can be produced in one pan.

In this recipe I sautéed a chicken breast and made some baked red potatoes with some steamed broccoli… YUMMY.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
