This lemony chicken dish is a quick and easy way to give your family a nice treat on a weeknight Ingredients: Boneless, skinless chicken breast halves: 2-4 Pieces salt: pinch Parmesan cheese: 2 Tablespoon Pepper: pinch Olive oil: 4 Tablespoon Flour: 1/3 Cup Brined capers: 1/4 Cup Butter: 4 Tablespoon Parsley: 1/4 Cup Lemon juice: 3 Tablespoon Chicken stock: 1/2 Cup Directions: Cut the chicken breast halves horizontally, butterflying them open. Mix together the flour, salt, pepper, and grated Parmesan. Rinse the chicken pieces in water. Dredge them thoroughly in the flour mixture, until well coated. Heat olive oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet on medium high heat. Add half of the chicken pieces, do not crowd the pan. Brown well on each side, about 3 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the pan and reserve to a plate. Cook the other breasts in the same manner, remove from pan. Cover with aluminum foil and keep warm in the oven while you prepare the sauce. Add the chicken stock (or white wine), lemon juice, and capers to the pan. Use a spatula to scrape up the browned bits. Reduce the sauce by half. Whisk in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Plate the chicken and serve with the sauce poured over the chicken. Sprinkle with parsley.
