Spicy Lemon Garlic Chicken

Spicy Lemon Garlic Chicken

PSA: If you’re not already addicted to garlic lemon chicken, you will be now. 😉 This recipe is our go-to because it just never misses. The chicken is tender and covered in a velvety smooth sauce packed with flavor. Pairs amazing over rice or save some of the saucy goodness and mix it into pasta. Make sure you also set some sauce aside for later - it’s amazing to dip toast in for a snack! Trust us, you’ll thank us later. This really is a dish that just keeps on giving. 🤩
