Creamy Lemon Chicken ( better than an olive garden recipe!)

2 tbsp. olive oil
10 chicken tenders ( or breasts, I usually do like 4, and use the extra sauce and mix with thin spaghetti noodles mmm!)
1 tsp. Herbes de Provence
1/2 tsp. creole seasoning
1 cp. chicken broth
1 3/4 cp. heavy cream or half/half ( to cut calories)
zest of 1 lemon
2 tsp. lemon juice

Serve with thin spaghetti noodles or rice.
Sprinkle herbes de provence and creole seasoning. Heat oil in skillet over med-high heat and brown tenders on both sides. Add chicken broth and simmer just until chicken is cooked through. 1 to 2 minutes. Remove chicken from broth and set aside.

Allow broth to simmer and reduce down for a few more minutes, then add cream and lemon zest. Simmer for 10 to 12 minutes or until sauce has reduced to desired consistency. Stir in lemon juice and add chicken back to sauce.
