The instruction how to make Chicken in white wine and caper sauce

  4. Add 1.25L (5 cups) of the reserved cooking liquid to the butter mixture, 250ml (1 cup) at a time, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring often, for 20 minutes. Add the chicken to the saucepan. (To freeze, see tips below.)
  5. Cover the saucepan and cook for 10 minutes or until the chicken is heated through. Stir in the capers and lemon rind. Season with salt and pepper.
