Taste of Home: Chicken with Lemon Pepper Cream Sauce

Chicken with lemon pepper cream sauce is a new addition to family’s food favorite – it’s lemony, creamy, peppery, and tasty.

Here are the reasons why we love this dish:

  • We love the freshly crashed Kampot peppercorns and the combination of pepper and lemon as it creates a really wonderful full flavor.
  • It’s an easy-to-make meal – easy enough to make it for a weeknight but gorgeous enough to make for a special occasion.
  • The velvety consistency of the sauce transforms our table into chic and elegant French dining room.

In my recipe, I use boneless, skinless chicken breast and fry it quickly about 3 to 4 minutes each side. I also add a wee bit of salt and some complementary spices like garlic and shallots for more flavor. In addition, I use Emmental cheese as it is fruity and tastier than cheddar and it doesn’t taste strong. It is best served with hot steamed rice, or steamed fresh vegetables like asparagus or broccoli, or sautéed spinach.

If you do not have a lemon pepper powder spice you can make your own lemon pepper powder by using pepper powder, garlic powder, salt,  and lemon juice of half a lemon. Then mix it well together.

It’s definitely a dish that would make everyone happy.
