4 (6 ounce)
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
fresh lemon juice
freshly ground black pepper
chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
I was a little hesitant to try this because It had so few ratings but I made this for my husband last night and he really loved it. The only thing I did differently was I cooked the sauce and chicken together instead of taking out the chicken and pouring the sauce later. I think it allowed the chicken to absorb more of the flavor. Anyway, give it a try because this is a winner!
I made this recipe without dredging the chicken in flour (as I was looking to make a grain free dish). I sauteed seasoned chicken tenderloins in coconut oil.
I served it over baked spaghetti squash with a little shredded parmesan on top. Both my husband and I found the sauce to be too lemony and/or tart. However, it was a good base. I will make it again, but next time I will probably cut the lemon in half, decrease the capers and add some butter (which perhaps I was missing because I didn't cook the chicken in butter).
Thanks for sharing this.
This recipe has been a classic and is very simple to make. This recipe incorporates all the proper flavors , the white wine being a very nice touch for the sauce. Haven't changed a thing, comes out perfect every time! However sometimes for faster cooking I will use chicken tenders vs chicken breasts.
This recipes is a keeper.
Simple and quick, this makes a flavorful dish, wonderful served over pasta.
I added more wine to deglaze the pan so the sauce wouldn't be too tart, per other reviewers' comments. Using chicken tenders, the meat cooked evenly and in smaller portions which made sharing with the kids easier. We enjoyed this recipe and will make it again.
Yummy! I made this for company and put it over spaghetti squash, like one of the reviewers mentioned- delicious! The lemon makes the dish taste nice and light and the wine compliments it beautifully. I will definitely be making this again!
This is a great recipe. I like that it goes together so quickly. Great for a weeknight meal, but fancy enough for company. We love the taste of capers, it combines beautifully with the sauce and chicken. The chicken came out tender and moist. Served with mashed potatoes and green beans. Thank you Sandra1980!
