One Pot Lemon Butter Chicken with Parmesan

Hands up if you are looking for an easy meal like this One Pot Lemon Butter Chicken with Parmesan? I might put my feet up too. Everyone needs quick easy and healthy recipes right? Life is so busy nowadays and having access to recipes like these takes all the stress out of thinking about what to cook.

A lot of times, the fact that we HAVE to cook every single day, is what makes cooking so tiresome. I think if we had the option to not cook, and to only cook at a leisurely chilled pace, more people would enjoy cooking. Did that even make sense?!

Basically it can feel like a chore. Not to me but I am talking on behalf (but why though Saf?!) of people who don’t like cooking a lot. So firstly, sorry for speaking on behalf of people..secondly, this is exactly the kind of meal you need to cook when you can’t be asked with having to cook. I mean who needs food anyway? Haha. The great thing about this One Pot Lemon Butter Chicken with Parmesan is that it doesn’t compromise on flavour. I came across it via Tasty and adapted to suit my tastebuds. Seriously so good!

Seriously can someone come warm my toes up please? I AM FROZEN. Our heating isn’t working and I am really feeling it. I need me some hot water bottles..which i have but I can’t be asked to fill them up because it is too cold to move. I need one for each foot and one for each knee. I feel like my head is frozen too. No hot water bottle on my head though..NAH.

Anyway this One Pot Lemon Butter Chicken with Parmesan recipe is here because I love lemon and lemon anything. So lemon butter chicken? Oh yes. Absolutely my thing. I just find that no one ever says..aah i don’t do lemon chicken, not for me! Which is great because who wants to make a gazillion dishes to suit a gazillion tastebuds. Not me. No sir eeee. I think that is how you say it. Clearly I need sleep. 

Parmesan has become a once in a blue moon thing for me now. I used to eat so much of it! So this feels like an indulgence and a one off and it totally is. I would not recommend you eat this everyday! LOLS

Anyway, hope you enjoy this recipe!
