1. Chicken With Lemon & Caper Cream Sauce

    Tuesday, September 27, 2011

    "What to make for dinner?" I thought to myself.  The only thing I wanted for sure was capers!  So I decided to grab some inspiration from other recipes online, blend a few ideas together, and create something great!  Here is my little creation.  I think it turned out really well!  If you try it, let me know what you think!

    Chicken with Lemon & Caper Cream Sauce // recipe  no.  214

    {1}   1/2 Medium size Onion, chopped
    {2}   3 Cloves Garlic, minced
    {3}   2 T. Olive Oil
    {4}   1 1/4 Cup Chicken Stock
    {5}   1 tsp. dried Dill
    {6}   Zest & Juice from one Lemon
    {7}   1/3 Cup Cream
    {8}   1/2 Graded Parmesan Cheese
    {9}   1 3.5 fl. oz. Jar of Capers
    {10}  4 Chicken Breasts
    {11}  Salt & Pepper
    {12}  Dash of flour, for rue


    {1}  Slowly cook onions and garlic in olive oil over medium heat  in heavy sauté pan.  Stir frequently until garlic and onions are soft.  Don't let the garlic brown.
    {2} Add the chicken stock, dried dill, lemon zest, and lemon juice.  Turn the heat up to high and let boil for 5 minuets.

    {3} Add the cream, Parmesan cheese, and capers to chicken stock mixture, stirring frequently.  Allow sauce to come back to a boil.  Remove a 1/2 Cup of sauce in measuring cup and sprinkle with flour - whisking quickly with a fork to make a rue (This will thicken the sauce).  Pour rue back into sauté pan and mix in with sauce.

    {4}  Add chicken breasts to sauce lower temperature to a medium heat.  The sauce will thicken as the chicken cooks through - but stir frequently.  Season with salt & pepper.  When chicken is cooked all the way through - serve and enjoy.  I recommend serving with couscous!

    Cook Time:  Approx. 30 mins
