Skillet Creamy Lemon Chicken

Recipe by Gatorbek
READY IN: 30mins




  • In a nonstick skillet, heat olive oil over med high.
  • Stir in garlic butter until melted.
  • Add chicken.
  • Cook 5 min to brown, then reduce heat to med.
  • Turn chicken and cook about 4-5min more until juice runs clear when pierced.
  • Transfer chicken to a warm dish.
  • Lower heat if needed to maintain medium-low to medium heat so as not to scorch the garlic, then add garlic to the drippings in the skillet.
  • In a cup, mix stock, wine, lemon juice, and 1 1/2 teaspoons of flour until smooth.
  • Stir into mixture in skillet. Scrape skillet to incorporate any browned bits from the chicken.
  • Heat to a boil, boil 1 minute. Stir in capers and remaining 1 tablespoon of butter and the heavy cream, simmer until thickened.
  • Pour sauce over chicken, sprinkle with parsley and garnish with additional lemon slices.
  • **This recipe is to make double the sauce to add to add to pasta if you are laying the chicken on top.
  • Note: Occasionally, this has turned out a little more "tangy" than I would like with too much lemon. If this happens, just dilute with a little extra chicken stock or broth mixed with cornstarch or flour to keep thicker consistency.
