Loretta Lynn's Creamy Lemon Chicken
You may want to add a smaller amount of lemon juice, as it is fairly prominent. However,when reheated the next day (if there are any leftovers!) the lemon flavor will have mellowed.
I also often add one minced garlic clove when browning chicken.
One of my husband and my favorite recipes!
