Lemon Butter Chicken {Recipe}

Y'all it is still 88+ degrees here and I am dying! However, that isn't stopping me from faking it like it's Fall. One thing that Floridians are stellar at is faking the seasons. We have the air cranked way down, house decorated and pumpkin candles burning. 
This lemon butter chicken is definitely one of those yummy, home-cooked, comfort meals-perfect for Fall! 

I N G R E D I E N T S:
-4-5 chicken cutlets
-2 cups kale or spinach chopped
-1 cup chicken broth
-1/2 cup milk
-1/4 cup shredded parmesan
-3 cloves of garlic minced
-4 tablespoons of butter
-1 tablespoon of paprika
-1 tablespoon of fresh thyme 
-juice of one lemon
-salt and pepper to taste

D I R E C T I O N S:
-preheat oven to 400 degrees
-season chicken cutlets with paprika, salt and pepper
-melt two tablespoons of butter in a cast iron skillet on a medium-high heat 
-place a decent size amount of kale and parmesan in the middle of each chicken cutlet and roll it up. secure with a toothpick
-place each chicken bundle in the skillet and sear each side until golden-brown (1-2 minutes per side)
-drain excess fat and place bundles aside.
-melt remaining butter in skillet. add garlic and cook until fragrant. stir in chicken broth, cream/milk, lemon juice and thyme. 
-bring to a boil. reduce heat and add the rest of the kale and parmesan. stir until sauce has slightly thickened and kale is wilted. add chicken bundles back into skillet.
-place into oven and roast for about 15-20 minutes.

Guys-this is the juiciest and yummiest (hi I am a child) chicken ever. When you make this, you will want to drink the sauce so, grab a spoon! 

I hope you enjoy!
