Chicken and Mushroom in Lemon Cream Sauce – lemony creamy chicken is a favorite in our home. It has a light lemon flavor and is fork tender.
I have been making Chicken and Mushrooms in Lemon Cream Sauce for well over 20 years now. I remember my friend and I had this dish at a fancy Italian restaurant on vacation. It was called “Pollo in Salsa di Crema Di Limone” and we vowed to recreate it.
The lemon and cream flavor was so perfect together.
After a few tries this one we decided tastes perfect. Just enough lemon and cream combo. It’s kind of like an Alfredo and a Piccata mixed together.
Chicken and Mushrooms in Lemon Cream Sauce will become a favorite meal in your family also.
YUM! Make this creamy lemony chicken today!
