Grilled Chicken with Creamy Lemon, Tomato & Basil Sauce

I'm always trying to figure out new and easy things to do with chicken. Fresh tomatoes on the vine, basil, fresh squeezed lemon & a touch of cream make for a wonderful simple sauce. 0 4-5

thin sliced chicken cutlets
tbsp chopped onion
tbsp flour
tbsp butter
garlic cloves, chopped
of 3 lemons
big handful of basil, chopped
cup vegetable broth
Tomatoes on the vine
cup light cream


  • 1 Season your chicken with salt and pepper and grill. I grilled mine inside on my grill pan.
  • 2 In a saute pan over medium low heat, add the butter, onions and garlic and cook until just softened.
  • 3 Whisk in the flour until combined. Next whisk in the lemon juice, again until well combined. Allow to simmer a couple minutes. The sauce will have thickened.
  • 4 Add the broth to the pan and whisk to combine. Simmer for a couple minutes. Toss in the tomatoes and simmer until they are slightly softened. Mix in the basil.
  • 5 With the flame at low, add in the light cream and simmer for a few minutes, be sure to stir so it doesn't burn. Season with salt and pepper.
  • 6 Pour over your grilled chicken. I served mine over white rice and a side of sautéed string beans. Really simple, super flavorful dish!
