1. Season chicken with salt and pepper and coat in flour.

5. Wipe the pan and add remainder oil with sliced mushrooms and onions, saute until soft and golden.
6. Add garlic and chillies and saute another 1-2 minutues. Spread mixture over the chicken.

8. Add chicken broth, milk, lemon juice and pepper, and whisk until smooth.
9. Add cream and bring to a boil, allow to thicken. Season with salt.
10. Pour sauce over the chicken and mushrooms. Cover with foil.
11. Place in preheated oven at 180 degC and bake for 30-45 minutes.
12. Serve over mashed potatoes, pasta or rice.
Note: I sprinkled a little cheese over after I heated in oven
