- Reduce heat to low; add shallots and capers to skillet. Cook 30 seconds, stirring. Add broth and juice, cook 1 minute, until incorporated and thickened, stirring. Stir in parsley, pour sauce over chicken. Serve immediately.
I loved the whole wheat flour used in this recipe. I left out the shallots as I didn't have any and cut the recipe to one chicken breast for the two of use using all of the sauce ingredients. Just excellent and one I will make again. Thanks for sharing.
It was wonderful. Light and fresh. I added artichoke hearts, and a few sun dried tomatoes! wonderful!
Great recipe, thanks for posting. Substituted limes for lemons (that's what we have here) and basil for the parsley. Delish! Will make again.
