Melt in your mouth ecstasy. This recipe requires a clay pot for it to turn out just right. Serve the over rice pilaf.

  • Arrange chicken in an oven proof clay pot or medium baking dish. Coat with lemon juice, and season with pepper.

  • In a small bowl, mix the melted butter, steak sauce, 2 tablespoons capers, and 2 tablespoons caper liquid. Reserve remaining capers and liquid for another use. Pour the butter mixture over the chicken to coat.

  • Cover and bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. Drizzle with remaining liquid from the baking dish to serve.

I really am shocked that such a simple recipe is so awesome! For those who had dry chicken you must have used too large of a pan. This is really fabulous -- even for the non-caper lovers. If you take the time to read the reviews you have to try this!!!! Thanks for the post!

Dry dry dry!!! Flavor was OK but that didn't make a difference given how bone-dry it turned out. Maybe it was because I baked it in a Pyrex dish and not a clay pot...?

Delicious!!! Used A1 but reduced by half due to some comments I read about the A1 overpowering everything. Added some flour to thicken sauce. Will add even more flour next time and stick with the A1 amount. A fantastic dish if you like capers! Will make again!

I was skeptical of the steak sauce but no one could guess the ingredients at my house. Only changes I made were to slice the chicken breasts lengthwise (kind of like a scallopini) and then saute in 1/2 of the butter for a little color. Added the rest of the ingredients per the recipe and baked for 20 minutes at 350. Scrumptious and really pretty.

A keeper! My husband and parents loved it. It was quick easy and yummy! My husband was trying to guess the ingredients (he got capers and lemon juice) but he didn't guess steak sauce! I was afraid it would be too steak-saucy but it wasn't at all. (I used Lawry's Steak Sauce.)

Very easy to make and tasty. I did double the sauce but it seemed to make a whole LOT of it so I'm not sure doubling was necessary. Other than doubling the sauce I made it just as written. My only complaint is that the sauce is a little thin so next time I'll thicken it up with cornstarch before serving. And I'll add more capers (my own personal preference).

For those of us who love capers and lemon... this is a great recipe! I've made it for several guests and all rave about it.
