      Higher than 5 stars this is for me! LOVE the simplicity! Very versatile too! Can add spinach, roasted capsicum, capers, TRUE! To enhance presentation, I cut breasts in half horizontally, Then I cut them vertically, Then cut each piece into three! Made cooking the pieces even easier and it worked for me! THANKS!

      i kind of ended up making up a variation of this. The chicken wasn't cooking evenly, so I cut it up in the pan, added the butter, lemon, white wine and capers and mmm mmm good! Served with roasted veggies. Perfect! Thanks for sharing.

      We just had this and it was a very good Supper. Here is a tip for Chef 1292784. Growing up in a time LOOOOOOOOOOOng before you were hatched (the depression of the 1930's) we learned to conserve. When flouring anything. instead of dumping a lot of flour in a dish just sprinkle it on the meat and add the herbs etc. This should prevent any thoughts about waiste. My flour, etc. drawer is just to the right of my working counter. When my Wife see's that dreawer out she backs off. :O) Cap'n Jack Good luck and Happy Dinning. Because food should not only be good it should be FUN.
