Creamy Caper & Sun Dried Tomato Chicken

Image

There are some meals you cook that come out so good that you just want to jump around….okay, well maybe that’s just me who wants to jump around. 🙂 But, you know what I mean! And this meal? Ah….(sighing deeply)…..we took much great pleasure in it!

It does my heart good when I randomly create a meal all my own, and my hubby enjoys it immensely! There is something so great about creating something for the enjoyment of others. This brings to mind a picture of my dad in the kitchen when I was a kid. He cooked awesome meals (I especially think of his ribs, baked beans, and shrimp), but he sometimes didn’t even eat them….he just watched all of us with a big smile on his face. I know without a doubt that he knew that feeling of bringing others delight through his cooking. I now know that feeling as well. 🙂

    • Thank you so much Patty! I had never had capers before (that I know of)….yummy! I love cream sauces too!! I tried to use mostly the creamy part of coconut milk and just a little butter to make this healthier. It tasted great!
