Lemon & Butter Chicken

So delish - you'll love this!

Serves: 4 Time: 20 minutes



  • 450g chicken breast

  • 100g butter

  • 50g capers, drained

  • 3 lemons, zested and juiced

  • 30g fresh parsley, chopped

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • Steamed greens of your choice


  1. Place the chicken breasts between 2 sheets of cling film or a sandwich bag. Using a rolling pin, gently pound the chicken until it's approx 1.5cm thick. Season well.

  2. Heat ¼ of the butter in a large pan over a medium-high heat and cook the chicken for 4 mins on each side until golden brown. Set aside.

  3. Add the remaining butter and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring constantly for 2-3 mins until its melted and golden brown.

  4. Throw in the capers and cook for 1 min. Then whack in the lemon juice and half the zest, and mix through.

  5. Next throw the chicken back into this same pan, pouring in any chicken juices too. Cook for 2-3 mins until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and the sauce has thickened slightly.

  6. Serve with your favourite steamed greens or salad and sprinkle with remaining lemon zest and parsley.
