Yield 4 servings
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 pound thin sliced chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ΒΌ cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons capers

Instructions

  1. Season the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat the avocado oil in a large, heavy bottomed skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add the chicken and cook through, flipping halfway through cooking, about 8 minutes.
  4. Remove the chicken to a plate and set aside.
  5. Add the chicken broth and butter to the skillet and bring to a boil. Let the chicken broth reduce by half, about 5 minutes.
  6. Add the lemon juice and cream to the skillet and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes.
  7. Add the capers to the sauce and stir to combine.
  8. Return the chicken to the skillet and coat with the sauce. Cook 1 more minute to rewarm the chicken.
  9. Serve immediately.

Notes

Serve over zucchini noodles or cauliflower rice to soak up some of the extra sauce.
