Real Cooking time: 30 mins preparation and cooking

This recipe was supposed to have cream and lemon juice stirred through before serving. We forgot, but it didn’t taste any less delicious for it. Other changes were coating the chicken in cornflour before searing (I pretty much always do that when pan-frying chicken), and deglazing the pan with vermouth.
