    JanuaryBride's Note:

    This is a take on troyh's Easy Garlic Chicken Breasts, but I switched up the ingredients, cooked it in the microwave and used the drippings to make a wonderful lemon butter sauce. SUPER SIMPLE. . .you must try this! Perfect over rice with a side of asparagus.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place frozen chicken breasts in a ziplock baggie (or whatever brand you prefer).
    2. 2
      Juice your lemon and lime. . .you should have 1/4 cup of juice.
    3. 3
      Whisk the juice, oil and garlic and pour mixture into the baggie over top the chicken. Seal and place in fridge to marinate for approximately 24-30 hours (so if you want them for dinner Friday, start marinating them Thursday morning).
    4. 4
      1 hour prior to cooking, remove chicken from the fridge and let it come to room temperature.
    5. 5
      Remove chicken from marinade, season both sides with salt and pepper, and place in a baking dish. Discard your marinade.
    6. 6
      Cover the dish lightly with wax paper. Cook in microwave on power level 7 for 10-12 minutes, turning the chicken over half way through cooking. I recommend checking the chicken for doneness after 10 minutes so as not to overcook, then just do 1 extra minute at a time from there. When you poke with a fork, the juices should run clear.
    7. 7
      When chicken is cooked, remove it from the drippings and place on a plate (tent it with aluminum foil to keep it warm).
    8. 8
      Pour the drippings into a small sauce pan, add butter and place on med-high heat.
    9. 9
      Mix the cornstarch and water; add it to the sauce pan and bring to a boil, then turn down and simmer 2 minutes or until desired thickness (remember it will thicken a bit upon standing and cooling).
    10. 10
      Add Capers to sauce.
    11. 11
      Serve chicken with a small amount of sauce poured over top and a side of rice and some asparagus spears for a wonderful meal.
    12. 12
      NOTE: The time of cooking is based on 3 medium to large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, so if yours are smaller, you will need to marinate less and cook a minute or two less.

      Here is a great-tasting chicken dish that I served with brown rice! Followed the directions & ingredients, except that I used lemon pepper instead of the S&P indicated! A wonderful meal, & well worth the effort ~ I think the citrus marinade is what made this for me! Thanks for sharing! [Made & reviewed as a kidnapped recipe in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #16]
