Lemon Chicken with Thyme and Garlic Recipe

This is my quick version of my sister’s Lemon Chicken with Thyme and Garlic Recipe. Since I live in the countryside of the island, it’s very hard to find Campbell's Chicken Cream in the local stores, so I came up with this quick version where I have omitted the baking time and Campbell's chicken cream. It is a quick and easy to do recipe, ideal for busy moms. Serve with vegetables, White Rice, or with our favorite, Rice with Noodles.
