Creamy Lemon Chicken is an indulgent upgrade to weeknight dinners. This mouthwatering chicken is pan seared and coated in a velvety sauce full of garlic and lemon flavor. Even better, it’s a one pan dinner that’s ready in 20 minutes!
Season each piece of chicken with salt, pepper, and garlic powder on both sides.
Place the butter and oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. When butter is melted, swirl the pan to mix the olive oil and butter together.
Add chicken to the pan and cook until golden. Flip the chicken and cook the other side until golden, and chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken onto a plate.
Reduce heat to medium. Add the garlic and italian seasoning to the pan and cook one minute, stirring constantly.
Add the broth to the pan, bring to a simmer. Scrape any brown bits off the bottom of the pan into sauce. Stir in the cream, simmer 2 minutes until slightly thickened. Stir in the lemon juice. Add chicken back to pan, coat with sauce.
NOTE: This sauce will thicken up more after standing for a couple of minutes.
