Ingredients for 4 servings:

And this is how it is done:
Plate the chicken breasts and season with salt and pepper. Then cook them in a pan with a little olive oil for 2 minutes on each side. Then put them in a pan.
Squeeze two cloves of garlic on it and crush the other cloves of garlic and add them to the pan. Slice the lemons and add to the casserole dish. Heat the oven to 200 degrees (convection).
Mix the cup of cream with half of the Parmesan cheese and sour cream and season with salt, pepper, nutmeg and chopped parsley and pour over the chicken breast.
Finally, place the remaining Parmesan on the chicken breasts and roast in the oven for about 20 to 25 minutes.
Our Chicken in Lemon Garlic Sauce is quick to prepare and simply tastes delicious. Slow cooking in the oven makes it buttery soft and allows it to fully absorb the flavor of the essential oils. Although there are definitely lighter summer dishes, you will not feel full even after enjoying this dish.
And with just four grams of carbs per serving, it’s a true low-carb meal, too. You also save almost entirely on washing, since everything is prepared in the oven. If that’s not reason enough to try our Lemon Garlic Chicken!
Chicken is especially popular when the temperature rises, as the meat is lean and light. We present a delicious combination with chicken in our recipe for chicken breast with asparagus and rhubarb. Also check out this unusual but delicious recipe for Chicken Tenders with Strawberry Cucumber Salsa. This chicken breast stuffed with green asparagus and mozzarella is just as delicious. If you want something a little more unusual, we recommend this grilled chicken in a beer can.
