Add chicken back to the pan and arrange the lemon slices around the chicken. Cover the chicken and bring down to a simmering and cook for about 10 minutes, until the chicken is done and at least 165F degrees.
After the chicken is cooked, remove it from the skillet. Remove lemon slices from the skillet and add the heavy cream to the skillet. Bring to boil and mix everything well, scraping from the bottom.
Immediately reduce to simmer, add the chicken back to the skillet and reheat. To serve, spoon some of the sauce over the chicken and sprinkle with remaining chopped bacon and chopped green onions.
