Pan-Roasted Chicken with Lemon Butter Sauce

Pan-Roasted Chicken with Lemon Butter Sauce

Meal times with my family is always a great time.

And when the food is even better it keeps us all at the table having great conversations. This is one of those dishes that keeps me in my seat, eager to eat more, listen more and laugh. And if you don't like chicken (or want a change of taste) you can use turkey, pork chops, or a nice sliced pork loin.
