Tips To Make The Creamiest Garlic Lemon Chicken:

Chicken breasts: To ensure even cooking, try to choose chicken breasts that are of similar thickness. If they’re too thick, you can butterfly them or use a meat mallet to gently pound them to an even thickness.

Searing: Searing the chicken in a hot pan creates a flavorful golden crust. Make sure the pan is hot before adding the chicken.

Nutritional variation: For a lighter version, you can substitute heavy cream with a lighter option like half-and-half or Greek yogurt.

Adjust nutmeg: Nutmeg has a strong flavor. Start with a small amount and adjust to your taste.

Serving: Garlic Lemon Chicken pairs well with rice, pasta, or steamed vegetables. The creamy sauce is great for drizzling over your chosen side.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Can I use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts?

Yes, you can use boneless, skinless chicken thighs. They may require slightly longer cooking.

2. How do I store leftovers?

Leftovers can be refrigerated in an airtight container for 2-3 days.

3. Can I make it ahead of time?

This dish is best enjoyed freshly made, but you can prepare the sauce in advance and reheat it when you’re ready to serve.

4. Can I freeze it?

It’s not recommended to freeze this dish because the cream sauce may separate upon thawing.

5. Can I adjust the spiciness?

Yes, you can add a pinch of red pepper flakes or cayenne if you’d like to add some heat to the dish.

6. What do I do if the sauce is too thick or too thin?

If it’s too thick, you can add a little more cream or water. If it’s too thin, you can simmer it a bit longer to reduce and thicken the sauce.
