Directions

  1. Warm oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Pat chicken breasts with paper towels to thoroughly dry. Season chicken with salt and pepper, then lightly coat with flour, using about 1 tsp for each breast.
  2. Lay chicken in skillet; cook 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown, gently pressing down on breast to ensure equal browning. Reduce heat to medium. Turn breasts; cook 2 to 3 minutes longer, until golden brown and cooked through. Remove breasts to a serving platter.
  3. Reduce heat to low; add shallots and capers to skillet. Cook 30 seconds, stirring. Add broth and juice, cook 1 minute, until incorporated and thickened, stirring. Stir in parsley, pour sauce over chicken. Serve immediately.

I loved the whole wheat flour used in this recipe. I left out the shallots as I didn't have any and cut the recipe to one chicken breast for the two of use using all of the sauce ingredients. Just excellent and one I will make again. Thanks for sharing.

It was wonderful. Light and fresh. I added artichoke hearts, and a few sun dried tomatoes! wonderful!

Great recipe, thanks for posting. Substituted limes for lemons (that's what we have here) and basil for the parsley. Delish! Will make again.
