Parmesan-Crusted Chicken with Capers Recipe

Parmesan cheese and capers make a tasty combination for chicken breasts. If you cannot use wine, substitute additional chicken broth for the sauce. You can have this on the table in less than 30 minutes.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon flour
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 green onions (scallions), thin-sliced, tops included
  • 1 Tablespoon capers, drained


Combine garlic powder, onion powder, poultry seasoning, and lemon pepper. Sprinkle spice mix on both sides of chicken breasts, then coat each side with Parmesan cheese and flour.

Heat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add olive oil and swirl to coat the pan. Brown chicken breasts on both sides, turning only once. Remove to a plate and keep warm.

Add white wine to deglaze the pan, scraping up any browned bits. Cook for 1 minute, then add chicken broth. Bring to a simmer and return chicken breasts to the pan. Simmer until liquid is reduced by half, then add green onions and capers. Cook an additional 2 minutes. Serve chicken breasts with pan gravy.

Yield: 2 servings

Looking for different way to cook chicken breasts, Member mds1922

I saw this recipe and decided to try it. I had everything but the chicken broth. The chicken broth probably would have made a difference and gave it an extra kick but I really liked it. It was different and light. I paired it with garlic mashed potatoes and garlic string beans. Great dish. I will definitely use it again.
