  • 4 - boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 teaspoons - lemon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoons - salt
  • 1 teaspoons - dried dill weed
  • 1 teaspoons - garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoons - butter
  • 1/2 cups - whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons - capers, drained and rinsed
  • Directions:

    1. In a small bowl mix together the lemon pepper, salt, dill weed and garlic powder; use to season chicken breast halves (reserve any remaining seasoning not used on chicken).

    2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Place breasts in skillet (and sprinkle any remaining seasoning over top of chicken pieces); increase heat to medium-high.

    3. Turn chicken frequently, until brown, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, and cook 5 to 7 minutes, until breasts are cooked through. Remove chicken to a warm serving platter and cover with foil.

    4. Return skillet to stove and increase heat to high. Whisk in whipping cream, whisking continuously until reduced to sauce consistency, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in capers, pour sauce over chicken, and serve.

    (Served with organic California brown basmati rice - 2 cups dry)
    (Served with fresh green beans stir fried with leftover pancetta - need to use less olive oil next time).
