Creamy Lemon Pepper & Garlic Chicken

Lemon and chicken are a really good combination provided the lemon is not overpowering.  I prefer a more subtle, understated lemon flavour.  This recipe provides that result.

This dish provides beautiful juicy chicken thigh fillets in a wonderful creamy garlic and lemon pepper sauce.  The lemon, garlic and lemon pepper seasoning blend well together to provide a wonderful mix of flavour to the creamy sauce.  Mix some cheese into the sauce, garnish with spring onions and you have a very impressive meal.

This is a really easy meal to make that you should definitely try.
