  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained and chopped
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste

Directions

  • First of all, sieve together flour and salt in pie plate. Now put chicken pieces into this seasoned flour, and shake off excess.
  • Now, heat olive oil in large nonstick skillet pan over medium to high heat. Add chicken (in batches) and cook until browned or tender and cooked thoroughly, for about 3 minutes each side; then transfer it to a plate.
  • Add chicken broth, lemon juice, and capers to skillet; bring to boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer until slightly reduced, for about 2 minutes. Return chicken to skillet and cook, turning to coat, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Transfer chicken to platter. Remove skillet from heat; add butter and parsley. Pour over chicken.

Notes

Pleasing your taste buds is also important, if you are a foodie like me and enjoy chicken recipes but you have took a step back just thinking over the increasing waist line. Ahhh… it’s torturous!!

Looking for a solution? Today lets cook something healthy, absolutely a 5 pointer for the weight watchers and importantly delicious! Today lets cook – “Chicken in Lemon Caper Sauce”

As we all know chicken is rich in protein and I have already explained the benefits of chicken in my previous blogs. So, let’s talk about “Lemon” – This fruit is highly rich in Vitamin C which is good for our immunity system. It clean the bowels, treat for scurvy, it’s a great detox and good for the waistline.
