Creamy & Zesty Chicken

I have to admit that before I used to try to avoid cooking with chicken breast but that was until I succeeded in cooking tender chicken breast. & now I really love it! There are many ways that I cook with it, one of the favorites being the Chicken in Mushroom Sauce. I love the creaminess in that recipe.

But this time I wanted to maintain the creaminess & add something different. Why not zest?! It might seem a bit odd but in reality it’s just delicious. We loved it! On top of that, it takes a few simple steps to cook it.

I’d love to hear your feedback & opinion on this recipe, so let us know!
