Turn chicken frequently, until brown, about 5 minutes
 Remove chicken to an oven dish.
Add to skillet the remaining ingredients, capers, caper juice, bay leaf, pepper and a pinch of salt, finally the heavy cream, bring to boil, reduce heat and cook about two minutes.
Always stirring.
Remove the bay leaf.
Pour the sauce over the chicken .Cook for about 40 minutes. Bath  with the juice during cooking.

3/4 taza de crema larga vida
3 cucharadas de alcaparras (Usé marca Gourmet, muy buenas)

de por sí tienen sal)

Adaptada de revista Paula Cocina año 1991.

Preparación

Precalentar el horno a 180°c
En un sartén mediano derretir la mantequilla y dorar las pechugas de pollo en cuartos o mitades.

Colocarlas en una fuente de horno y reservar.
Agregar a la sarten (que aún tiene mantequilla), las alcaparras, la crema, jugo de alcaparras,  una pizca de sal, pimienta y la hoja de laurel.
Cocinar llevando a ebullición, despues bajar el furgo y cocinar durante unos dos minutos.
Revolver siempre ocasionalmente. retirar la hoja de laurel.
Entonces verter la salsa sobre las pehugas de pollo y llevar a horno por unos 40 minutos.
Rociar con el mismo jugo ocasionalmente mientras se cocina.

    Last time I bought different capers and I practically had to bin dinner. I hadn't noticed they were such a high content and I should have soaked them first. Oops !

  29. Queridísima Gloria, bien me podrías regañar por no haber pasado por aquí desde hace tanto tiempo. Bueno, ya me autoregaño yo, porque tú eres demasiado buena. Tengo demasiadas cosas en la cabeza. Aún así, me pongo muy contenta cuando veo algunas palabras tuyas donde Pepe.
    He estado repasando tus últimas recetas. ¡Me ha entrado un hambre viendo estas pechugas! Nunca he probado la crema de alcaparras, y me ha llamado mucho la atención. La crema larga vida, ¿es como una nata suave de cocinar?
    También me ha enamorado totalmente tu pastel de zanahorias con la cubierta de mascarpone y yogurt. Tanto que me lo apunto para hacerlo un día. Se ve para chuparse los dedos.
    Un abrazo enooooooorme, para ti y toda la familia. Espero que todo esté mejor. De corazón.
    Besos, AMIGA.

    1. Estaba segura que te había contestado pero en el celular nunca se sabe. además no soy experta:)
      Como estás Rosita? yo feliz de que me vengas a ver como se te ocurre que voy a estar molesta, yo feliz de que vengas.
      Trato de pasa siempre donde Pepe ya sabes como lo quiero a él y a Theo.
      Y tambien pasa saber de uds. No siepre puedo.
      Si la crema larga vida es una nata suave. porque solo lleva un poco para darle sabor a la salsa.
      besos amiga!

  46. Chicken with capers is really such a wonderful combination - I've never had this version before, but I've made a chicken piccata (breaded chicken) with a wine and caper sauce and it's always amazing how the briney-ness fo the capers really bring out the flavors of the chicken... Thank you so much for sharing!
