Chicken with Lemon Caper Sauce

When I see a recipe that has lemon in it, it makes me think of a bright, warm summer day. I love how lemons bring that fresh flavor to a dish. Isn't it funny how some flavors can immediately transport you to another season? With all the bitter cold we've been enduring the last month or so, I thought making a dinner that was filled with sunshine would be a nice change of pace.

I found this recipe in my copy of Cooking Light's 5 Star Recipes. This cookbook has really become a go-to resource since I purchased it. The recipe for Chicken with Lemon Caper Sauce can be found at the Cooking Light website, HERE.

The great thing about a recipe like this is that I can often get offers to help from at least one of My Boys. Just look at that concentration as My Oldest gets every... last... drop... from the lemon.

His hard work paid off with a very flavorful and lemony sauce to go over the chicken and pasta. Rather than saute the chicken as full pieces, I chose to slice it thinly so that it would cook in a flash. This was a delicious dinner, but definitely a bit too "lemony" for My Husband so I was able to eat the leftovers for my lunch the next day. It reheated beautifully.

Now, for a little diversion. I was recently given a blogging award by one of my dear Food Blogging friends, Shelby of The Life and Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch. She is really such a sweetheart for passing the Triple Award on to me! If you haven't visited her blog yet, be sure to go and visit after reading on to see who I tagged for this fun award. Thanks, Shelby!

I love chicken with lemons and capers - it's stand enough on it's own that it doesn't even need pasta!
