Are you still quarantined or don’t want to risk eating out?

This beautiful one-pan chicken dish is easy to make and a firm favourite with my family…it is truly tried and tested…Dinner for two then just halve the recipe…

This chicken dish is one we make often and it is quick and easy and served with rice or potatoes and some lightly steamed vegetables it is very nice.

Lemon Chicken with caper sauce.


• 4 Chicken Breasts (skinless)…
• 2/4 cloves garlic.
• 1 tbsp capers ( rinsed)
• 2 tbsp chopped parsley.
• Half lemon sliced.
• 1/4 cup lemon juice.
• 1/2 pint chicken stock.
• 5 tbsp Olive Oil.
• 2 tbsp Butter.
• Parsley for garnish.

Let’s Cook!

  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Dredge chicken in flour and shake off excess flour.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat add 3 tbsp olive oil. When the oil starts to sizzle, add 2 pieces of chicken and cook for 3 minutes.
  • When the chicken is browned, flip and cook the other side for 3 minutes. Remove and transfer to plate. Add another 2 tablespoons of olive oil. When oil starts to sizzle, add the other 2 pieces of chicken and brown both sides in the same manner. Remove pan from heat and add chicken to the plate, set to one side.
  • Into the pan add the lemon juice, stock, capers and garlic.
  • Return to stove and bring to boil, scraping up brown bits from the pan for extra flavour.
  • Check for seasoning and add lemon slices and parsley.
  • Return all the chicken to the pan and simmer for 5/10 minutes depending on the size of breasts. Remove chicken to a platter.
  • Add 2 tablespoons butter to sauce and whisk vigorously. Pour sauce over chicken and garnish with parsley.
  • Serve with boiled rice or potatoes of your choice and steamed broccoli and cauliflower.

    Oh, yummy, Carol. This looks absolutely delicious. I have chicken in the frig and was wondering what I would do with it. Now I know. I’ll make some crusty bread to go with it. Thanks for the recipe!
