Looking for tasty chicken breast recipes? Try this one skillet meal, chicken with creamy lemon caper sauce and pasta. I cooked this  complete pasta chicken dish using my favorite cast iron skillet (pre-seasoned, made in the USA).

Capers are the small, unopened flower buds of a Mediterranean bush. You can purchase capers at any grocery store, generally pickled in vinegar and packed in jars. Capers provide a piquant not to sauces, dressings, and salads. Capers in vinegar should last for months in the original jar in the refrigerator after opening. Salt-packed capers may be stored for several months at room temperature in an airtight container. Be sure to drain off liquid before using capers packed in vinegar. Salt-packed capers should be rinsed and dried.

    Smothered Chicken with Mushroom Gravy – Posh Journal

    […] I’ve cooked chicken and mushrooms in varieties of styles, and this simple chicken with mushroom gravy is probably one of my favorites.  One reason for that is that it’s made with simple seasonings and ingredients. I used a lot of garlic and didn’t hold back on the fresh thyme!  As pictured the chicken and mushrooms are a perfect match for pasta, but a few weeks ago I used this identical recipe over rice pilaf.  That’s oftentimes the case; if you’ve done a good job with the flavoring of your protein and veggies then they will shine and taste good with just about anything.
