Jump in the Pan Chicken

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Aunty Dotty

If you love lemon, I think you'll love this! Its very quick and easy, a perfect midweek meal actually. Be careful with the amount of flour that gets cooked on the chicken, as it can make the finished dish a bit 'gluggy'. But you can always squeeze more lemon on to loosen the sauce.. I think this a Jill Dupleix recipe ( her's are always great! ) Feel free to muck around with it, as it's a pretty loose recipe..

I did use chicken thighes (skiness/boneless) for this recipe and allowed a little estra time for the cooking (I Quartered 5 chicken thigh fillets though some sectiions were cut into thirds rrther than halves and served over bow tie p;asta and overall the flavours were good but I thought a little salty so woulld cut back of the ca[ers fopr personal taste but the DM and DS immensely enjoyed, made for PAC Springn 2012.

  2. Toss in a bowl with flour to lightly coat.
  3. Heat 2 tbs oil and 1 tbs butter in a good sized pan over med-hot heat.
  4. When hot, add the chook in bits and pieces so as not to overload the pan all at once.

  6. Remove pan from heat and add wine, capers, salt and pepper.
  7. Put back on the stove on high heat, moving and bubbling.
  8. When reduced to only a little, add 1 tbs butter, a squeeze of lemon and the parsley and jiggle til creamy.
  9. Serve with the extra lemon over rice or pasta and something like spinach or green beans on the side.( ie any combo that takes your fancy! ).
