Sometimes weekdays call for something delicious but not so time consuming to cook. I tried this recipe out on a whim because I had the ingredients laying around and it has turned into quite a keeper. Simple ingredients but big on flavour and very easy to make.

I like to make the lemon butter sauce whenever I have leftover cream and freeze it for days just like this.

Let’s get cooking…

If you don’t have some already made start off by making your lemon butter sauce, melt the butter with garlic, spices and lemon juice, once the butter is melted, remove from the heat and stir in the cream. The sauce should thicken immediately and will be ready to serve.

Season your chicken with salt, pepper and some peri-peri spice. and place into a heavy bottomed pan with a tablespoon of olive oil. Brown the chicken and then pour over half of the lemon butter sauce. Allow to simmer gently until the chicken is cooked through. Serve with fluffy mashed potatoes.
