This tender chicken breast recipe is an excellent and delicious meal for lunch and dinner. A lemony chicken Francese that can be whipped up quickly! Create a luscious and creamy sauce with a hint of fresh lemons.

Adding rosemary during the frying process would add a lovely aroma to this chicken recipe. Adding some dried oregano and dried parsley is a good idea. Even adding a teaspoon of turmeric will give a vibrant vibe. You can add almost any herb or spice if you want it to this versatile recipe. You can use garlic powder instead of minced garlic cloves. Add a half cup of white wine to add an extra zing to the creamy sauce.

If you want a thick sauce, just add a combination of equal parts of cornstarch and water; mix well and add to the center of the pan for a thicker sauce.

The recipe calls for chicken breast because they are the largest piece and are easy to fry. But you can also use boneless thigh meat if that’s what you have available. This amazing dish is a kid-friendly recipe, meaning kids will love this to the very end!
