My fiancé and I over the past two years have taken out some of the guesswork into figuring out what we want for dinner and receive the meal delivery service Blue Apron once a week. This gives us ingredients for 3 meals weekly and such a wide range of recipes and ingredients that we aren’t typically exposed to.
This lemon caper chicken recipe is a constant favorite that we both love making, and something that I’d love to share with you all. What I love about this specific recipe it uses all ingredients that you will have in your fridge and pantry.
To make this lemon caper chicken you will need:
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 lemon
- 2 cloves garlic chopped
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
- 1 tbsp capers
- 1 oz salted butter
Begin by patting your chicken dry with paper towels (this is going to help with getting a nice crust on your chicken), season with both sides with salt and pepper and enough Italian seasoning to coat both sides.
In a medium pan (nonstick if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken breasts and cook about 7 minutes per side or until browned and cooked through. Leave those brown bits in the pan, they’re packed with flavor and will add to your pan sauce! Remove the chicken and now it’s time for the good part - the pan sauce!
To the pan of fond (browned bits and oil), add your butter and chopped garlic. Cook on medium-high, stirring constantly and scraping up any fond, 1-2 minutes until the butter is fragrant and the foam subsides (about 1 minute). Add your capers and the juice of 2 lemon wedges. Season with salt and pepper and turn off the heat.
Taste, then season with additional salt and pepper if necessary. Slice your chicken crosswise and serve with the pan sauce overtop. It is so delicious. If you love salt and lemon like I do, you’ll love this dish!
