Chicken with Lemon Caper Sauce
Here is a new recipe I wanted to try today - based on the Chicken with Lemon-Caper Sauce recipe from Cooking Light. This came out fantastic and will definitely be on a repeat list at our house. We served this with asparagus and couscous - for a perfect dinner.
Ingredients (Serves 4):
1/4 tsp (plus a dash) Kosher salt (adjust to taste)
1/4 tsp (plus a dash) Black pepper (adjust to taste)
1/2 tsp Oregano (dried)
4 (4-ounce) skinned, boned Chicken breasts, cut into two haves lengthwise (no more than 1/2" thick)
1 tbsp & 1 tsp Olive oil
1/2 cup Chicken broth
2 tbsp Lemon juice
2 tbsp Capers, rinsed
1 tbsp Parsley (fresh), chopped
1. Sprinkle the 1/4 tsp kosher salt, 1/4 tsp pepper and dried oregano over the chicken.
2. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. 3. Add chicken and cook 6-7 minutes on each side or until chicken is done. Remove from skillet and keep warm (under foil)
4. Return the pan to the burner and add chicken broth, lemon juice, capers, and a pinch of kosher salt & black pepper to skillet, scraping skillet to loosen browned bits. Cook for around 2 minutes and remove from the heat. Stir in parsley and then spoon sauce over chicken.
