Dill Cream Sauce

I made this dill cream sauce to use with sauteed chicken breasts.  It would also be delicious with meatballs (sort of like Swedish Meatballs) or over pasta or fish.

2 T. butter


3/4 c. chicken broth


1 T. lemon juice


1 c. whipping cream, coffee cream, or half and half


1 T. dillweed


salt and pepper


Melt butter in pan.  Add broth and lemon juice and cook for a minute. Add cream and dill and cook for 5 minutes until heated through. Season with salt and pepper.


If using anything other than whipping cream for the cream, you may need to thicken it with a bit of flour or cornstarch dissolved in water.


This made enough sauce to cover four small chicken breasts.
