Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a skillet pan place 1/2 the butter and olive oil to heat up on medium high.
  2. place all the dry ingredients in a gallon size plastic baggy, mix well and then add the tilapia or chicken and coat well.
  3. place the tilapia/chicken in the oil/butter mix and cook without burning ( lower heat if needed) so it cooks half way and is golden brown approximately 4 min, then flip to cook other side of tilapia.
  4. let talapia/chicken cook 1- 2 min then add remaining butter, capers, lemon juice and chicken broth. reduce heat to med low and sauce will thicken slightly.
  5. Serve with pasta, rice or with a veggie for a quick and tasty meal everyone will love.
  6. I actually double the sauce, pull out the fish when it is done place a little sauce over the fish and the remaining sauce I place over angel hair pasta. This is my daughter favorite meal. I make the same exact meal with chicken cutlets as well. Garnish with lemon slices on top of Tilapia or Chicken cutlets.
