Cooking Tips:

  1. Make sure you use fresh parsley and ground pepper

  2. Trim the fat off the chicken

  3. This pairs great with my Lemon & Herb Rice recipe

  4. Don't mess this up, it's easy...



  • 4 (6oz - 8oz) Skinless Chicken Breasts ( or 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs)

  • 2 Tbsp. Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1 Large Lemon, Sliced & Juiced

  • 3 Cloves of Garlic (1 Tbsp. minced garlic)

  • 3 Tbsp. Butter

  • 2 Tbsp. Capers

  • ¼ Cup of Dry, White Wine

  • 1 Tsp. Black Pepper

  • 1 Tsp. Salt

  • 1 Tsp. Onion Powder

  • Freshly chopped parsley, for garnish



  • Using a cast-iron or enameled skillet, heat olive oil over medium-heat

  • Season chicken with Salt, Pepper & Onion Powder

  • Cook chicken until very light brown (about 6-8 minutes per side)

  • Place chicken on a plate and set aside

  • Discard half of the chicken juice from the skillet & reduce to low heat

  • Next, add the Butter, Lemon Juice, White Wine, Capers & Garlic; bring to a simmer

  • Add in the Lemon slices & return to Chicken to the skillet

  • Allow the Chicken to simmer in the sauce for 5-10 minutes

  • Garnish with fresh Parsley before serving. Serve with your favorite rice or pasta!
