I sauted the chicken on both sides with spices till nicely brown on both sides {about 10 minutes}. Then proceeded with sauce. This is a keeper! I made it for dinner for 7 people and they loved it. I did increase the lemon juice by 1 TBLE. spoon. I too, served the sauce on the the side. This gets an A rating. Leslie

This was good, though I think next time I might cook the chicken in olive oil instead of butter. I did not put the chicken back into the pan with the sauce but served it on the side so it wouldn't make the chicken breading soggy. The cream sauce was good and the lemon flavor was very subtle. I served with rice and asparagus.
