Lemon gives the light meat a lovely flavor. The lemon tanginess is so refreshing in the springtime. It also gives you some vitamin C to help you make your dinner even healthier. It’s perfect for a weeknight meal and takes less time to make in a jiffy. I added more butter than you need (2 tbsp). Feel free to adjust the amount or just use olive oil. It will still be delicious.
