Expert Tips

To broil chicken, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning once.

Capers have a sharp lemony-pickled flavor (they are sun-dried and packed in vinegar brine) that perks up sauces and salads such as tuna salad, potato salad and egg salad. Italian and Spanish capers are pea and olive-sized, respective. The smallest and the finest capers are the tiny "nonpareils" from Southern France. Choose small capers for this recipe.

Use a dry white wine such as Chenin Blanc or Chardonnay for the cape sauce.

For an easy side dish, brush zucchini halves, summer squash and tomato halves with olive oil; sprinkle with desired seasonings. Grill the vegetables until crisp-tender.
