    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    I came up with this recipe in a effort to create a chicken dish that uses Limoncello. The sauce is so good! The capers add a salty pop that is countered well with the sugary Limoncello. Limoncello does not have the acidity of fresh lemons, if you LOVE lemon flavor, add a Tablespoon of lemon juice as well. Bon Appetite.

    1. 1
      Whisk mustard and egg in a small bowl.
    2. 2
      Put bread crumbs on a large shallow plate and top with equal big pinches of rosemary, thyme, marjoram and sage and a few cranks of the pepper mill. Literally pinch the herbs to help release the flavor. Sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt (or more if you like salt) and garlic powder. Mix thoroughly with your fingers.
    3. 3
      Heat oil and butter in a large saute pan on medium-high heat.
    4. 4
      Dip the breasts in egg/mustard mixture and dredge in crumbs.
    5. 5
      Cook chicken for 3-4 minutes a side, or until it is no longer pink inside and the crumbs are a nice golden color. Remove and transfer to a plate to keep warm.
    6. 6
      Add broth and limoncello to the empty pan and scrape the brown bits with a rubber spatula. If you are adding lemon juice for a more lemony flavor add it now.
    7. 7
      Add capers, lemon slices and parsley and stir to combine. Steep for about two minutes. The sauce will rapidly evaporate so watch it carefully.
    8. 8
      Place chicken breasts on plates and top with the cooked lemon circles and spoon sauce over chicken.

      Easy but delicious. Followed recipe exactly, except at the end I thickened the sauce a little with Roux.

      This recipe is extraordinary! I served Corn w/ green onions as a side dish (Sauteed Fresh Sweet Corn and Green Onions) and the match of the tangy lemon sauce w-the sweetness of the corn was superb!

      I added to the sauce the extra lemon juice and also some Moroccan preserved lemons that match the capers & mustard musky flavors. It came out great! I also marinated the chicken w/lemon, garlic and herbs overnight.

      The only change I'll make next time is to saute in oil only (no butter): I used medium-low heat and still the butter was burned by the time the chicken cooked through. Great recipe!
