Chicken with Savory Lemon Caper Sauce

Tender, boneless chicken breasts are simmered in a light, lemony picatta-inspired sauce that takes on extra flavor dimension with the addition of coarse grain mustard.  Cooked pasta or rice make the perfect compliment to the tender chicken and flavorful sauce.

How to Make It

Step 1

Season the chicken as desired.

Step 2

Heat half the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken and cook for 6 minutes or until browned on both sides.  Remove the chicken from the skillet.

Step 3

Reduce the heat to medium.  Heat the remaining oil in the skillet.  Add the shallot and capers and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add the flour and cook and stir for 1 minute.

Step 4

Stir the broth, lemon juice and mustard in a bowl.  Stir the broth mixture in the skillet and cook until the mixture boils and thickens.  Reduce the heat to low.  Return the chicken to the skillet.  Cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.  Remove the skillet from the heat.  Stir in the half and half.  Season to taste.

Recipe Tips

  • Serving Suggestion:  Serve the chicken and sauce over hot cooked noodles or rice.
  • Ingredient Note: We develop our recipes using a 4-to 5-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast half per serving. However, there are a range of sizes available in-store, from the butcher counter to the meat case and the freezer section. Use whichever you prefer- just follow the recipe as written above for the best result. If you're using larger chicken breasts they may require a little longer cooking time.
