Seriously good chicken. The cream sauce really lit up with the lemon juice. Thanks.

Great recipe! Easy to make and a great taste. My family has declared that I should make it once a week!

This is absolutely awesome!! I didn't have the chicken breasts, so subbed with legs/thighs, and it worked out just great. I also used smoked paprika. Thanks for sharing!
