Lemon Chicken Saute Recipe


One of the perks that came with my marriage was a whole lot of yummy new recipes!  We affectionately refer to this Lemon Chicken Saute recipe as “Grandma’s Chicken” at my house because it is a recipe that originally came from my husband’s grandmother who is an awesome cook!  The sauce for this recipe is SO good and the chicken is so tender that you can “cut” it using your fork, which is a plus if you’ve got kids.  In case you’re wondering, it’s kid friendly, too!  My kids love it!
