Chicken in Caper Cream Sauce #Recipe @PegCochran

Capers and cream sound like an odd combination but this was quite tasty.  I was a little hesitant about using garlic powder, but it turned out well.  I did use only two breasts and cut them in half horizontally since they were quite large.

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 teaspoon lemon pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons capers, drained and rinsed

Season chicken breasts with lemon pepper, salt, dill and garlic powder.

Melt butter iover medium heat. Add breasts and increase heat to medium-high. 

Brown chicken on each side, approximately five minutes. Reduce heat to medium and cook another five to seven minutes or until done.  Your timing will vary according to the size of your breasts.  Your chicken breasts. Not your breasts.  Just want to make that clear.

Remove chicken to a platter and cover with foil while you make the sauce.
Increase heat to high. Whisk in whipping cream, whisking until thickened to sauce consistency approximately three minutes. 

Remove from heat. Stir in capers. Pour sauce over chicken, and serve.

Then Gloria’s stepmother is shot dead in a Waldorf bathroom, placing Elizabeth at the scene of a headline-worthy scandal: “Murder of a Society Dame.” Now Elizabeth will have to get the scoop on the killer before her good name gets dragged through the gossip columns—or worse. . . .

  1. I can always use another chicken recipe. And I love capers!

    1. My daughter used to eat capers out of the jar when she was little!

  2. The recipe sounds so good! I have never had capers, I don't think, but I would be willing to try them.

    1. Capers add a sharpish bite to the dish-like vinegar. You could easily omit them as well if you didn't have any on hand.

  3. My father used capers a lot.
    Of course, he was also the person who conned me by saying paprika was only for a color accent, as if it didn't have a taste!
