Spicy Cajun Chicken With Capers and Lemons

Time: 20 mins


  • 1/2 cup unbleached flour
  • 1 tablespoon cajun seasoning, to taste (I like the spices used in Cajun Style Oven Fries or any good homemade Cajun spice mix)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 4 skinless chicken breasts, pounded to about 1/3-inch
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained
  • fresh parsley (to garnish)


  • 1 In shallow bowl combine the flour, Cajun seasoning mix and paprika. Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper.
  • 2 Dip the chicken into the flour mixture to coat completely.
  • 3 Heat the olive oil in a heavy, non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Saute the chicken until brown on both sides and cooked through, approximately 4 minutes per side.
  • 4 Transfer the chicken to a serving plate and vent with a piece of foil on top.
  • 5 Next add the broth, lemon juice and capers to the skillet and bring to boil, scraping up the brown bits from bottom of skillet.
  • 6 Boil the mixture until the sauce thickens slightly and can coat a spoon, about 5 minutes or so. Season sauce to taste with salt and pepper.
  • 7 Spoon sauce over chicken and serve. Garnish with fresh parsley.
