This dish is a snap to prepare but always hits the spot at my house. The creamy sauce with a hint of lemon keeps the chicken moist and delicious. Serve over pasta or rice.

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chicken until lightly browned on both sides, 5 to 7 minutes. Place in a baking dish.

  • Stir lemon juice and zest into the leftover butter in the pan, and cook over medium-low heat, stirring, for 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in half-and-half slowly. Stir in 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese until sauce is smooth. Pour sauce over chicken.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, 20 to 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese on top.
