Step 1

Combine the 4 sticks of margarine, 8 sticks of butter, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1/2 cup white wine, and 2 teaspoons of chopped garlic into a mixing bowl and beat at a medium speed until a smooth consistency in the butter is formed. Once combined, keep refrigerated.

Into a warm pan, combine melted plain butter, chicken breasts, tomatoes, mushrooms, bacon, salt, black pepper, and garlic salt. Sauté until chicken begins to brown and tomatoes begin to dissolve. Add heavy cream and allow to boil in the middle of the pan for about 5 minutes or until thickened slightly. Remove from fire, add lemon butter, and fold together to make sauce. Serve over spaghetti.
