Yield:
1 chicken portion and 3 tablespoons caper mixture per serving

Ingredients

  • 2 8 ounce skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut in half horizontally

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 medium lemon, thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoon capers

  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh parsley

Directions

  1. Place each chicken breast portion between two pieces of plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a meat mallet, pound chicken lightly until about 1/4 inch thick. Remove plastic wrap. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.

  2. In a large skillet melt butter over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until browned and no longer pink in center, turning once halfway through cooking. Remove chicken from skillet; set aside.

  3. Add garlic to the hot skillet; cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute or until lightly browned. Add chicken broth to skillet, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Bring to boiling. Add lemon slices and capers. Cover; reduce heat to low. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until lemon slices are softened and releasing their juice. Return chicken to skillet; heat through.

  4. To serve, spoon caper mixture over chicken. Sprinkle with fresh parsley.
