Updated Feb 7, 2011

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons drained capers (from 3-oz. jar)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat grill. Sprinkle chicken with lemon-pepper seasoning.
  • 2
    When ready to grill, place chicken on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook 12 to 15 minutes or until chicken is fork-tender and juices run clear, turning once.
  • 3
    Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour; cook and stir 1 minute. Stir in wine and capers; cook 2 minutes or until mixture is slightly thickened, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Serve sauce over chicken.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To broil chicken, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning once.
  • tip 2
    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.
  • tip 3
    Use a dry white wine such as Chenin Blanc or Chardonnay for the cape sauce.
  • tip 4
    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.
