    1. Sprinkle the chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Melt the butter in a heavy frypan and cook the chicken in batches until browned, about 5 minutes a side. Remove and set aside.
    2. To the frypan, add onions and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the flour and cook another minute.
    3. Add the hot water and chicken stock and bring to a boil. Add mushrooms, carrots, celery, thyme, salt and pepper.
    4. Return the chicken to the frypan with any accumulated juices and bring to a simmer over low heat. Cover and cook 30 minutes. Stir in cream and lemon juice.
