While I’m all about the baked goods and sweet treats, the reality is, we need some actual meals most days (crazy, I know!). My friend Melissa from Ice Cream Inspiration is helping us out with that today by sharing a delicious recipe for Creamy Lemon Pepper Chicken. I’ll turn it over to Melissa and let her tell you about this great recipe…
People, this is the best chicken you will ever have. Unless you don’t like lemon. Or pepper. Then you will not like it. But for everyone else, this is a “must-have” item on your menu. It’s really easy to make, and is always a crowd-pleaser. I get asked for the recipe every time I serve it. Chicken breasts with an amazing, creamy, cheesy, lemony sauce. You just can’t go wrong. And you probably already have all the ingredients on hand. It’s a win-win situation for everyone!
This goes great with mashed potatoes (the sauce makes an amazing topping for the potatoes). Then if you have leftovers, you can cut up the chicken and mix it in some fettuccine along with the sauce for a second-day meal. Or use the leftovers with rice, even making a tangy version of Hawaiian haystacks! I love this recipe for its versatility. I’m betting you will, too.
Creamy Lemon Pepper Chicken
- 4 chicken breasts
- 2 tsp. lemon pepper
- 1 10.75 oz. can Cream of Chicken soup
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 Tbsp. parsley optional
- Sprinkle 1 tsp. lemon pepper over breasts and bake in a 350-degree oven for 20 minutes. Mix remaining ingredients together (including the other teaspoon of lemon pepper) and pour over partially baked chicken. Bake another 20-40 minutes (depending on the size of your chicken breasts) until internal temperature registers 160 degrees and juices run clear. Let sit for ten minutes to allow sauce to thicken.
