Creamy Lemon Pepper Chicken-- New Recipe!

I came up with this recipe on a fly one night at the request of my hubs. And to my surprise it turned out really yummy! So since it was so yummy, I'm going to share!

Creamy Lemon Pepper Chicken!

4 thin cut chicken breasts
lemon pepper seasoning
1 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

For Sauce:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. minced garlic
2 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. fresh ground pepper
1 tsp. dried parsley
salt to taste
1 tbsp. all purpose flour

Generously apply lemon pepper to the chicken and fry in olive oil over medium heat until cooked through. While the chicken is cooking, start the sauce.
To start the sauce you will need to make a rue with the butter and flour over medium-high heat. Once combined, add the garlic and heat for 2 minutes. Add the heavy whipping cream and heat for 2-3 minutes, whisking constantly. Add herbs and cook for 2-3 more minutes. Add more herbs for more seasoning. The sauce should thicken as you heat it. If you would like it thicker, add just a little bit more flour to the sauce. Once chicken is cooked through, top with sauce.

This recipe goes great with my mashed potatoes as well!! Shoot, everything goes well with my mashed potatoes! :) Happy Tuesday!
