Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce
Reviews:
October 27, 2009

Four stars as written, as I believe that with just cream the sauce would lack dimension and would be rather flat. I embellished upon the recipe which made this dish a solid five star recipe. The chicken, which I seasoned only with salt and freshly ground pepper, developed a much more appealing look and color dredged in flour before sauteeing. Once I turned it over I covered it just briefly to make sure it was cooked through. After removing the chicken to set aside, I deglazed the pan with about 1/4 c. of white wine, then added the cream, a good squeeze of lemon (didn't use the lemon pepper at all), and now the dill. I used only two chicken breasts but kept the sauce measurements the same (essentially doubled the sauce), and it was just the right amount. If prepared with the amount of sauce as the recipe directs it would be pretty skimpy! The chicken was moist, tender and flavorful, with a rich, creamy lemon/caper/wine/dill sauce that made an already good chicken something extraordinarily delicious. I served this with cappellini pasta and "Spaghetti Squash Saute," also from this site. This was an outrageously delicious dish, a definite "make again." This cooking method and the sauce, by the way, would also be wonderful with salmon or other types of fish as well!
