Chicken With Lemon-caper Sauce

Chicken With Lemon-caper Sauce – This chicken recipe with lemony caper sauce is simple and light. The chicken is lightly sautéed and drizzled with a quick and easy lemon caper sauce.

This is a SUPER quick meal to make. I mash the chicken breasts a bit so they are thin enough to cook quickly. It’s a great weeknight meal and everyone seems to enjoy it. You can serve it over hot cooked pasta or rice, or you can eat it on its own if you eat low carbs.

Chicken With Lemon-caper Sauce

Chicken in Lemon Caper Sauce does not contain butter in the sauce. It’s dairy-free. The sauce is lighter based on vermouth, lemon juice and capers. If you don’t have vermouth, you can substitute white wine. The chicken breasts are sautéed “naked” in a little olive oil, without any coating.

In a classic Chicken Piccata recipe, the chicken is coated in flour. It is then sautéed in a butter sauce with lemons and capers. It’s delicious, but it’s much more caloric than this chicken with lemony caper sauce.

If you eat very light or low in carbohydrates, it is better to serve the chicken alone drizzled with sauce. Add vegetables to your plate and call it a meal. If you want to serve it over pasta or rice, you might consider doubling the sauce recipe so you have more sauce to coat the pasta or rice.

I have loved making this Chicken with Lemon Caper Sauce for many years now. This is one of the dinner recipes I look for when looking for a lighter meal for my family.
