Lemon Garlic Sauce

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine the lemon pepper seasoning and the flour. Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Sprinkle the lemon pepper-flour mixture on the chicken and then place in the hot oil, skin side down. Cook until well browned on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. Remove from the pan and put into a baking dish, skin side up. Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven for about 20 minutes or until cooked through (internal temperature should be 165 degrees F). 
  2. While the chicken bakes, heat the 1 tablespoon olive oil in a clean skillet. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds. Pour in the chicken broth. Add the lemon pepper seasoning. Bring to a boil. Pour in the heavy cream and bring back to a boil. Reduce heat and add the Parmesan and lemon juice. Stir until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. 
  3. Return the cooked chicken to the skillet and coat with the sauce. 

Note: You could cook the chicken all the way in the skillet if you want to skip using the oven. Remove the chicken to a plate and wipe out the skillet before making the sauce, then return the chicken to the skillet.
