Creamy Lemon Chicken


  • 60g plus 30g all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 65g butter
  • 250ml chicken stock
  • 240ml heavy whipping cream, divided 160ml + 80ml
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 250g sliced fresh mushrooms


  • In a shallow bowl, mix 60g flour, salt and pepper. Dip chicken breasts in flour mixture to coat both sides; shake off excess.
