A fantastically simple dish that looks and tastes gourmet, yet uses accessible ingredients, that so many adore! The sauce alone is worth trying! P.S. Butterflying the chicken is optional, but looks very pretty when plated and allows the flavors to infuse the chicken breast.

- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper

I've been meaning to review this recipe for a while! Initially, I was searching for a mushroom sauce for our steaks, and this one grabbed my eye. The first time I made it, I omitted the lemon zest for the steaks. I still had leftover sauce, so the next night I added the lemon and topped our scallops with this. I have since used this recipe for pasta and shrimp. I promise I will get around to using it on butterflied chicken breasts!!
