Pat the chicken breasts dry with paper towels. Season both sides with salt and pepper.
Heat olive oil in a large cast iron pan (I like this enameled cast iron one) over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and sear for 4-8 minutes per side, without moving, until browned and almost done (internal temperature should reach 160 degrees F). Remove to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
Reduce heat to medium. Add the minced garlic to the pan. Saute for about 1 minute, until fragrant.
Add the chicken broth, cream, and Italian seasoning, if using. Simmer for 2 minutes.
Reduce heat to low. Stir in the grated parmesan cheese, until it melts into a smooth sauce.
Stir in the lemon juice, and adjust amount to taste if desired.
Return the chicken to the pan. Simmer the chicken in sauce for 1-2 minutes, until hot and completely cooked through (internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F).
Serving size: 1 chicken breast with sauce
