1 lb. (450g) chicken breast

 3.5 oz. (100g) vegan butter (like Miyokos) Or Ghee 

 ¼ cup (50g) capers, drained

3 lemons, zested, juiced

 ½ cup (30g) parsley, chopped

salt & pepper

How to Prepare

Place a chicken breast between 2 sheets of cling wrap. Use a meat mallet, or rolling pin, to gently pound the chicken until it is approximately 1.5cm thick. Season well with salt and pepper.

 Heat ¼ of the vegan butter in a large pan over a medium-high heat and cook the chicken. Cook for 4 minutes each side or until golden brown. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

 Add the remaining vegan butter to the pan. Cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes or until the vegan butter melts and turns a golden brown color.

Add the capers to the butter and cook for 1 minute. Add the lemon juice and half the lemon zest, and mix through. Now place the chicken and any juices back in the pan. Cook, turning occasionally, for 2-3 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened slightly.

 To serve, sprinkle with parsley and remaining lemon zest.
