This is a very good recipe. Will definitely do this again. The lemon and capers really made this recipe.

Quick and easy! The family loved it. I used butter instead of butter sprinkles

This was tasty! I love lemon so I added an extra tablespoon of lemon juice. The capers really made the sauce! I did have to cook the chicken longer than stated and I cooked the chicken in olive oil and then omitted the extra olive oil at the end. I also used butter instead of butter sprinkles.

Very good. I didn't use butter sprinkles, I just added melted butter to the recipe.

I really like capers, so I had to try this recipe. It was very good! I've never heard of butter-flavored sprinkles so I used a tablespoon of butter -- the sauce was very silky. My entire family gave this recipe two thumbs up! I served it with aspargus, brown rice and mushrooms. Yummy dinner.
