A great dish. Very flavorful! The sauce can be drizzled over pasta for a wonderful side dish.

Top Review by Janet Warner

This was very good! I followed the recipe exactly, but I did use a lemon Vodka, also.
It was not to tart and the flavor burst in your mouth on first bite!
Even my grandson loved it and you know how kids can be with anything new!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Char the lemon slices on both sides in a pan over a high heat and set aside.
  2. Return the pan to a moderate heat and add the oil.
  3. Whisk the eggs and milk in a small shallow bowl. Tip the flour into another shallow bowl.
  4. Dredge a chicken breast in the flour, and then in the egg mixture. Place immediately in the pan. Repeat with the remaining breasts and saute the chicken until golden and cooked through. Set aside.
  5. Deglaze the pan with the vodka and loosen the flavor bits at the bottom of the pan by scraping with a wooden spoon.
  6. Add the butter, lemon juice, parsley, basil, capers, salt and pepper. Continue to cook until the mixture reduces by about a quarter. Return the chicken and grilled lemon slices to the pan and toss.
  7. Serve the chicken breasts topped with the sauce.
