Wendy asks: What super-simple dinners do you pull together with 5 ingredients?


Lemon Chicken
4 Chicken Brest
1 Teaspoon Tarragon
1 Teaspoon Thyme
2 Cups of Heavy Whipping Cream
Lemon zest and Lemon Juice

Lightly power chicken on both sides with flour and place in a frying pan with a little bit of butter
In a different sauce pan add heavy whipping cream, thyme, and tarragon, boil and reduce.
When almost done add lemon zest to cream and lemon juice to chicken.
You can serve over white rice and even add green onions…
Simple and easy! Must thank Fiancé’s Mom for that goodness!

so creative, pork chop and canned bbq sauce, lets condense it to one ingredient, drive through wndy's
or 5 more items, spoon, fork, plate, napkin , swine chop.
any more would be redundent?

Overall this meal was very good although next time i make it, i will add some of the cheese mixture on the top when the chicken has a couple minutes left to cook. It will give you more of the cheese flavor. Also, i made zuchinni and squash on the side. I sauteed the veggies after i mixed them with salt pepper and garlic powder. It was a delicious meal and i will definetly make it again!
