Simple Lemon Butter Sauce

Please Share Y'all!

This is an easy Lemon Butter Sauce. So simple to make and so versatile. You can use this sauce for pasta, chicken or seafood. I like using it to toss pasta in and serving as a side dish. Shown here with a breaded chicken cutlet topped with capers. YUM! Best of all with dinner was cooked and ready to serve in 30 minutes. You can’t beat that during the busy weekdays.
This sauce would be great with shrimp or lobster too. You could also use it to poach your favorite fish. The sauce is a little rich but don’t let that put you off – It taste surprisingly light and fresh.


1/3 c White Wine (optional)
1/2 c Chicken Stock
1/2 c Heavy Cream
3 tbs Lemon Juice
2 Sticks Butter
Pinch of Salt and Pepper
1 tsp Parsley (optional)

In a saucepan add chicken stock, white wine, salt and pepper, bring to a simmer over medium heat. Add heavy cream, butter, lemon juice and parsley. Stir until butter is melted. turn sauce down to low simmer until ready to use.

If I use it with pasta – I cook my pasta, drain well and add to a mixing bowl. Then I pour over the lemon butter sauce and toss it together. I reserve just a little of sauce to drizzle over what I am serving with it, such as the chicken above. Garnish with capers and lemon slice. If you’re using shrimp you could just toss that right in with the pasta. I love simple recipes that can be used in so many ways. Enjoy Y’all!
