Creamy Lemon Butter Sauce for Chicken

This lemon butter sauce chicken recipe was inspired by two of my favorite restaurant recipes:

  • The Chicken Costaletta at The Cheese Cake Factory; and
  • Pollo Rosa Maria Chicken from Carrabba’s Italian Grill.

I love a good lemon butter sauce, so I decided I would come up with my own. I also add some mushrooms to my recipe since I love them, but this lemon butter sauce tastes good on pretty much anything!

Preparing Chicken & Lemon Butter Sauce

Start by butterflying your chicken breasts so that you have 4 thin breasts. You’re then going to grill your chicken on low-med heat.

After that, juice your lemon into a large saute pan on medium heat.

Preparing the Mushrooms

To prepare your mushrooms, first, add them to the large saute pan where you just juiced your lemon. Let that simmer for only 1 minute.

Then, transfer your mushrooms to a smaller saucepan with 1/4 cup of butter. Saute the mushrooms in the butter.

Finishing the Lemon Butter Sauce

Head back over to the large saucepan with the lemon juice in it, and add the heavy whipping cream. Whisk that together. After that, add in 1/2 of butter a tablespoon at a time while continuing to whisk.

Once your chicken is cooked through, add it to the lemon butter sauce.

Finishing Touches and Serving Tips

All that’s left to do is add some final ingredients and you’re done! Cover the lemon butter sauce chicken with cheese and mushrooms, then cover the whole pan with a lid and cook on medium heat for 5-10 minutes.

Serve your lemon butter sauce chicken with rice, vegetables, or salad. You could also serve with some delicious mashed potatoes!

The second day we had leftovers so I cut up the chicken and mixed it with the lemon butter sauce rice and peas and we ate it like a casserole. This was very delicious too.
