الوصفة بالعربي

Enjoy these mouthwatering chicken breasts in a creamy capers sauce. One of our favorite recipes in the family, (which I got from my sister in law). It is one of the quickest recipes we prepare during busy days… & goes perfectly with Basmati rice.

  • 3 tablespoon butter - زبدة
  • 1 tablespoon oil (optional) - زيت
  • 1 kg chicken breast fillet - صدور فيليه الدجاج
  • 2 tablespoon garlic powder - بودرة ثوم
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice - عصير ليمون
  • 1 bunch dill (OR less if you're not a fan - finely chopped) - شبت
  • 1 cup cooking cream - كريم الطهي
  • 1 can capers (OR to taste) - حب الكبر
  • salt and pepper - ملح و فلفل

Step by step

  1. Clean the chicken breasts and dry it with a paper towel.
  2. Marinate the chicken breasts with garlic powder, lemon juice, chopped dill, salt and pepper. Leave the chicken to marinate for at least one hour in the refrigerator.
  3. In a hot pan, add the oil and 2 tablespoons butter. Grill the chicken in the hot pan on both sides until golden brown (2-3 minutes on each side.) Remove from the pan and set aside.
  4. In the same pan, melt the rest of the butter. Then add the capers without the accompanying water.
  5. As the capers cooks, scratch what was left from grilling the chicken using a wooden spoon and add the cooking cream. Bring to a simmer on low/medium heat.
  6. Add the chicken breasts again to the sauce, cover and let it cook for another 2-3 minutes. Serve immediately next to Basmati rice. Bon appétit :)
