Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

4 chicken breast, boneless, skinless
1 teaspoon lemon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons capers, drained and rinsed

Recipe Directions for Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

  1. Season chicken breasts with lemon pepper, salt, dill weed, and garlic powder.

  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Place breasts in skillet, and increase heat to medium-high. 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.
