Lemon Caper Chicken

lemon-caper-chicken

Lemons and capers have a lot in common.

Both are amazing ingredients for adding a lot of flavor without calories, sugar, or anything else you don’t want in your nutritious meal (unlike many other flavor enhancers, like condiments).

And turns out, they even complement each other, with the zesty lemon pairing perfectly with the tangy, salty taste of capers.

Add them to chicken and you won’t be disappointed.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 medium boneless and skinless chicken breast, pounded
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon capers, drained
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  • Place nonstick skillet on medium-high heat.
  • Add chicken and brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to plate.
  • Add lemon juice and capers to pan, swirl around to heat, and pour over chicken.
  • Top with parsley.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Chicken is a go-to protein-rich dinner, and this is an easy, healthy way to add lots of flavor. The lemon even adds a dash of vitamin C. Serve it alongside lots of veggies, like sauteed greens, broccoli, or a big salad.
