Here is yet another way to jazz up your standard chicken breast. I like to get a large package, trim them all, and make multiple recipes all at once while I am at it. So while making last week’s recipe, I also made this one. “Cream sauce” is a tough thing to do in a healthy way. Certainly not as decadent as the original but quite tasty all the same!
Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce http://allrecipes.com/recipe/78741/chicken-breasts-in-caper-cream-sauce/
· 4 chicken breasts
· 1 tsp lemon pepper
· 1 tsp salt
· 1 tsp dried dill
· 1 tsp garlic powder
· 2 Tbsp oil
· ½ cup almond milk
· 2 Tbsp capers, drained and rinsed
Season chicken with spices. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place chicken in skillet and increase heat to medium-high. Turn chicken frequently until brown, ~5 min. Reduce heat to medium and cook 5-7 min until done. Remove from skillet and keep warm. Increase heat to high. Whisk almond milk until it reduces a bit. Remove from heat, stir in capers, pour over chicken, and serve. Counts as a protein. Minimize the oil/fat by using a nonstick spray.
It is not unusual for me to have to tweak a recipe either because there are unapproved ingredients or I simply don’t have something on the list. I am probably the only person in the world without lemon pepper in her spice cabinet but such is life. Instead I used some lemon juice to add to the sauce. Feel free to use more almond milk for more sauce. Spice it up how you like and feel free to add extra like the lemon juice I used. Quick and easy!
Feast with lemon, feast with capers, and as always…FEAST ON!!!
