This is my favorite chicken recipe and I modified it by adding flour so that the sauce is thicker and is an actual sauce and isn't just flavorful water.
One skillet Chicken with lemon and garlic
4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs but chicken breasts will work.
1 cup of chicken broth
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
1 tablespoons of olive oil
1/3 cup of finely chopped onions
2 tablespoons salted butter
1/4 cup of heavy cream, milk will work
2 tablespoons of chopped parsley
2 tablespoons of sifted flour
Using a mallet, pound down chicken breasts/thighs until they are 1/2 inch thick. Sprinkle salt and pepper on them.
In a small bowl, combine chicken broth, lemon juice, garlic, and red pepper.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
Heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add chicken and allow it to brown on both sides for about 2-3 minutes each sides. Don't worry if it isn't cooked all the way. We will finish it in the oven.
Add chicken to a baking dish. Without cleaning the skillet, add the chicken broth sauce. Cook for about 8-10 minutes. Add heavy cream or milk. Add the flour. I prefer to use a strainer while adding the flour to prevent chunks. Remove from heat and add salted butter.
Pour sauce in baking dish, covering the chicken. Cook it for about 8-10 minutes until it's been thoroughly cooked. Top with the parsley. If you pair this with potatoes and some vegetables, it would be delicious.
Another good chicken recipe
Maple Dijon Chicken
1/4 cup of Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons of maple syrup
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tsp of soy sauce
1 clove of garlic
1/2 tablespoons of dried rosemary or 1 tablespoons of fresh
2 lbs of boneless, skinless chicken
preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. In a small bowl, stir together Dijon mustard, maple syrup, olive oil, and soy sauce. Mince garlic and rosemary and add them both. Coat inside of an 8x8 inch casserole dish. Arrange chicken so that they're close but not overlapping. Pour marinade and spread until thighs are covered. Bake the chicken in oven for 45-60 minutes or until they are golden brown.
3/4 cup of flour
1 1/2 tsp of sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp of salt
1/4 tsp of vanilla
1 tbsp of melted butter
1 tsp of butter for pan
Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. Beat egg and whisk in milk, vanilla, and melted butter. Gradually add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Heat a sauté pan over medium heat. Add butter to pan and cook each crepe until edges are brown. About 45- 60 seconds. Fill crepes with peanut butter, lemon juice, Nutella, strawberry sauce or any berry sauce, sliced fruit, and/or powdered sugar.
My Mom's Infamous Scones
1 3/4 cup of flour
4 tsp of baking powder
1/2 cup of sugar
1/8 tsp of salt
5 tsp of butter, melted
1/2 cup of dried berries or chocolate chips
1/2 cup of milk
1/4 cup of sour cream, I have found that cottage cheese or yogurt works fine.
1 tsp of milk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Cut in butter with pastry cutter. Add berries or chocolate chips. Put milk and sour cream (or whatever your substitute is) in a blender and blend thoroughly. Add to dough mixture and combine well. Pour onto baking pan and score the top. (Score the top means shape into a circle and cut it like a pizza.) Combine eggs and milk, brush on top of scones and let sit for ten minutes. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
1 12-ounce of Cream Soda
1/2 tsp of imitation butter extract

This drink is so damn good. It is basically Autumn in a glass.
