About this recipe: My husband (who is not a cook) developed this recipe when looking through what we had in the fridge. We love capers and my VERY picky 8-year old always asks for 'Daddy's chickie'.


Serves: 4 

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast fillets
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 teaspoon garlic granules
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 125ml whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained and rinsed

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Season chicken breasts with pepper, lemon zest, salt, dill and garlic granules.
  2. Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Place breasts in pan, 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.
  3. Return pan to hob, 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.

Lemon pepper

If you can't find lemon pepper seasoning, use a combination of ground black pepper and grated lemon zest.
