    Cookgirl's Note:

    From Bon Appetit November 1997. Can you believe it's low fat? This is begging to be served with red beans and rice! Cornbread sounds good, too! Tofu can be substituted for the chicken.

      I made this last night with 1 tweak for my diet, instead of flour I substituted wheat germ and a spicy Cajun blackening for the coating. PERFECT! It had an additional nutty depth, a little heat and was even more low fat. We really enjoyed the lemon caper sauce. Everything went great paired with steamed broccoli. Even the Fiance was unaware he was eating capers until it was gobbled gone! So stoked to sneak an ingredient I love in under his picky nose with such a slamming sauce!

      Great recipe. I made a little more sauce, since I had a cup of chicken broth. I used about 3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice and added a lot more capers, since we love them. I saved the extra flour mixture and used a little of that to thicken the sauce. The whole family loved it. Definitely one to make again!

      I knew DH and I would love this and it was definately a hit! We love lemons and capers and the lemon flavor was there but not real strong. Made for the Aussie/NZ tag game.
