Chicken in Lemon Caper Butter
40 mins (prep 5, cooking 35)
9 ingredients
4-6 servings
The first dish I ever served to guests and the response I got was so positive I've been making it ever since. Needless to say, it's a very simple recipe. One of the few chicken dishes I still make using bone-in, skin-on chicken parts. When feeding known garlic-lovers, I'll increase the garlic. I generally serve it with noodles. While I post the original amounts from the recipe below, I actually do not measure the butter & lemon juice when I make this, but rather use 1 lemon's worth lemon juice and approximately the same or just slightly more butter, so that the butter comes to about 2-3 Tbs I would guess.
