Chicken with Lemon Caper Sauce Recipe

I'm always searching for easy and healthy recipes for my family. I very easily get in the routine of making the same thing week after week...I feel so limited with keeping healthy and sticking to a mainly Paleo-friendly diet.

I was so excited to find this chicken recipe with lemon caper sauce on My husband and I both love capers! (salad is a packaged chopped kale and Brussels sprouts with added avocado, found at Safeway or Lucky)


  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained
  • 3 tablespoons minced flat-leaf parsley

  • Preparation

  • 1. Place chicken between 2 sheets of plastic wrap; pound to an even thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet. Sprinkle chicken evenly with salt and pepper. Place flour in a shallow dish; dredge chicken in flour.
    2. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken to pan; cook 3 minutes. Turn chicken over. Add broth, juice, and capers; reduce heat to medium, and simmer 3 minutes, basting chicken occasionally with sauce. Sprinkle with parsley; cook 1 minute. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm.
    3. Bring sauce to a boil; cook 2 minutes or until thick. Serve over chicken.
