A restaurant in our area used to serve a lemon sauce over chicken - one of my favorites. The restaurant closed, but this sauce is even better. Made by you recipe, it was outstanding. cutting the butter in half & using 1/2 & 1/2 instead of cream & adding a little chicken broth (short on wine) - it still got raves. The moral is check the pantry before starting dinner - but your recipe still saved the dinner for me.

I was looking for something special to add to the fresh green beans with sliced almonds I was asked to serve at a 50th wedding anniversary dinner I was catering. I came across this recipe and gave it try. Everyone loved the sauce including the very picky daughter giving the dinner! I will definitely keep this in my favorites!
