We made this using chicken tenders exactly as directed. Very simple to put together, this chicken is very tender and has an abundance of flavors. Thanks for posting.


  1. Take the 2 chicken breasts and cut them lengthwise in half. Pound them until thin. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Put flour in plastic ziplock bag. Add chicken one at a time until completely covered with flour. Shake to remove excess flour.
  3. In a large, heavy pan/skillet, heat olive oil over high heat. Add chicken breasts and fry for about 2-3 minutes per side.
  4. Remove from skillet when done and place on a plate.
  5. On the same pan/skillet, add the sliced shallots and saute for 2 minutes. Add capers. Saute another minute. Add juice of 2 limes and continue to saute for a couple more minutes.
  6. Add can of chicken broth and bring to boil. Let it simmer until it reduces to about half (about 5 minutes or so).
  7. Add chicken breasts and lower heat to medium-low. Cook in sauce for 2 minutes on each side.
  8. Serve with mashed potatoes or pasta and enjoy! :D.
