Skillet Lemon Chicken Breast Dinner

Are you always on the lookout for an easy to prepare weeknight meal for the family? This Lemon Chicken Breast Dinner cooked with heavy cream is the ticket. Easy to prepare and easy clean up with this recipe.

This one-pan chicken dinner is easy and fast to prepare. In 30 minutes, you can have a complete meal ready to eat that doesn’t require loads of cleanup afterward. We call for tender haricots verts because they’re quick-cooking; traditional green beans likely won’t be tender enough after the brief cooking time in the end. If that’s all you have on hand, steam them first, and then add them to the pan for the final step. Serve this hearty chicken and potatoes dinner with a simple side salad to sneak in another serving of veggies.

This is in part a recipe from Cooking Light but we have adapted it into a more of stroganoff and like it much better with the cream and sour
