  • 2 lbs chicken breast boneless skinless
  • 10.5 oz Cream of Chicken soup (1 can)
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 4 oz capers (1/2 jar)
  • 3/4 cup parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1 tsp garlic power
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  • 1 lemon thinly sliced
  • Fresh parsley chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 375˚F.
  • Mix the cream of chicken soup, lemon juice, capers, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, garlic, salt and pepper together in a bowl.
  • Lay the chicken breasts flat on the bottom of a large casserole dish.  Pour the cream of chicken soup mixture over the top and spread it evenly. Top with the remaining 1/4 cup parmesan cheese and top with two lemon slices on each chicken breast.
  • Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through (160˚F internal temp) and the sides are bubbly.
  • Add freshly chopped parsley over top and serve.  Remove lemon slices before eating. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes:

  • You can cut the chicken in half, chunks, or use chicken tenderloins in lieu of full chicken breasts to make serving easier. Cooking time may be reduced.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for 3-4 days in the refrigerator or in the freezer for up to a month.
