Sunday for dinner I wanted something good but easy. It’s a zillion degrees outside and I just didn’t want to stand over a hot stove. I kept thinking about Steak Tips, but didn’t have steak and refused to go to the grocery store on a busy Sunday afternoon.
I decided to make the Steak Tip recipe except with chicken. Then, made a cream sauce with capers with the pan drippings.
Big Daddy liked it so much, he asked for it again. This time I did a sandwich version.
(It would be great on a salad or over pasta.)
It was delicious and took about 10 minutes to prepare.
That is the best part!!
Cut chicken into 1 inch cubes or butterfly and pound thinly.
Salt and pepper.
Add 2 T canola oil and 2 T butter to a pan.
Get the pan hot, add oil and butter, just before the smoke stage and add chicken.
Cook 2 minutes on each side
When chicken is done, remove from pan and add 1 1/2 c heavy cream
Toast bread, we used a French bread
I added capers to the sauce.
Pour cream sauce on top of chicken.
The Chicken chunks I made the first time.
Great as an appetizer or as an entree’ served with a green vegetable and bread.
