I would love to mix capers w/ pasta or rice. How about in a salad? Any suggestions?

Our favorite way to use capers is in a pasta dish called Chicken Piccata.

4 large chicken breast, boneless and skinless
1 egg, beaten
Italian style bread crumbs
1/2 cup olive oil
Slice each breast into 4-5 long pieces, pound a little to flatten. Dip in egg and roll in bread crumbs. Saute in the olive oil in a large skillet (I use my electric skillet), until browned and almost cooked thru. Remove to a warm oven.
In the same skillet add 2T. chopped garlic, 1 tsp. dried basil, 1/2 tsp. black pepper, juice of 1 lemon, 1 cup chicken broth, 1 cup dry white wine and 2 T. capers. Simmer 5 min., taste and adjust seasonings. Place chicken back into pan with the sauce and warm thru. Serve over cooked pasta. We like steamed fresh broccoli served along side. Yummy
