    Teddy's Mommy's Note:

    I found this on a low carb website, I wish I could remember which one. Now that I don't do low carb I dredge the chicken breasts in 3 TBSP flour and salt & pepper to taste before throwing them into the skillet.

      Wow this was tasty and the sauce to die for. I will double up on the sauce the next time I make this. I can see pork chops or a fillet of pork being used as well. Thank you for a beautiful supper.

      Wordeful! Easy and tasty! I used only olive oil and not the butter, but that was the only change I made. Caper was so good with the lemon. I cooked the chicken for 2 minutes in the oil and then I let it simmer with the sauce for 15 minutes more. It will be a regular for now on!!! Thanks for sharing! Made it for PAC Fall 2007.

      I love this recipe. I pulled it a few weeks ago and I make 4 servings every week for lunches or dinners and freeze it for later. I add more lemon zest since I think it adds more flavor. It's great!
