This was the PERFECT recipe for the girls' night I hosted over the weekend. This chicken dish was very flavorful and had a beautiful presentation, but it was shockingly easy to prepare! I served over whole wheat pasta with a side of sugar snap peas. I garnished the plates with a swirl of lemon and parsley - very elegant. This recipe was perfect served with a pino grigio and some brushetta (I highly recommend Recipe #37718 - excellent!) Thanks for sharing, Little Bee! I will be making this one again soon!

Just like the title says, really easy and good. Added more garlic and doubled the sauce. I made my chicken breasts into small strips lilke chicken tenders, seasoned them with salt and pepper, sauteed them lightly, transferred them to a warm oven and then I sauteed some sliced mushrooms in the same skillet that the chicken was in. I poured the white wine, lemon juice, 3 minced cloves of elephant garlic, minced shallots, one teaspoon of "Better than Bouillon" chicken flavor,,capers, and zest of a lemon all together and let it simmer for about 5 minutes. Then I added about 1/4 cup of heavy cream to mixture and added the chicken to the sauce. Simmered for 2 minutes, put the pasta on the plate and topped it with the chicken and the sauce. Sprinkled freshly grated parmesan cheese on top. Fabulous!!!!!!
