    Lemon Butter Chicken

    Today I am going to share with you a fail-proof recipe to make the most tender and delicate chicken ever. I’ve experimented on my husband quite a lot until I’ve found out THE PERFECT way to make it (sorry, honey).

    Lemon Butter Chicken Pinterest

    What’s great about this lemon butter chicken recipe is that changing just a few herbs and/or spices will get you absolutely different flavors. Just swap the seasoning, play with herbs a bit, and you’ve got yourself a creative way of coming up with something new every time.

    Serving Ideas

    Serve this chicken with salad, mashed potatoes or my insanely easy, yet absolutely amazing French Green Beans with Bacon. And lemons of course… There is hardly a dish that does not benefit from a few lemon slices. Healthy and delicious!

    Cooking Tip

    Using white wine helps adding extra softness to chicken breasts. Usually, lemon, butter and wine are the perfect company!
