Rotisserie Chicken Breast Topped With A Browned Butter Lemon Caper Sauce

4 tablespoons butter, room temperature 

1 large lemon, sliced

Rotisserie chicken breast

3 tablespoons capers with 1 tablespoon of liquid from the jar of capers

Melt the butter in a medium-sized frying pan over medium heat. After butter has melted add the lemon slices and cook until they become very soft, about 5 or 6 minutes. The flavor of the lemon slices will be infused into the butter.

After 5 or 6 minutes have passed, remove the lemon slices from the pan with a pair of tongs, squeezing to get as much juice out of them as possible before discarding.

Add capers and liquid to the pan and reduce heat slightly to a simmer. Continue cooking until the butter turns a nice shade of brown. Remove from heat.

After removing the lemon slices add the capers and liquid to the pan and reduce heat slightly to a simmer. Continue cooking until the butter turns a nice shade of brown (be careful not to burn the butter). Remove from heat.
