Recipe by Realtor by day
READY IN: 40mins




  • In a small bowl, stir together the garlic and butter until well combined. Set aside.
  • Place a chicken breast half on a work surface with the thick side facing to the right (if you're right-handed), and place your left hand down on the chicken breast.
  • Using a very sharp knife, carefully cut the chicken breast from the thick side to about 1/2 inch from the edge of the thin side, in a horizontal cut.
  • Open the cut chicken breast and spread it out like an open book. Using a meat mallet, gently pound the butterflied chicken breast until it is an even thickness.
  • Place the flour in a shallow dish; dredge each chicken breast on both sides with the flour.
  • Melt the garlic butter in a large skillet over medium heat until it stops foaming.
  • Cook each chicken breast until golden brown on both sides, 6 to 8 minutes per side.
  • Sprinkle each breast with salt and pepper.
  • Remove the chicken breasts to a platter, and keep warm.
  • Cook and stir the mushrooms, in the same skillet, until the mushrooms have absorbed the remaining butter in the skillet and have begun to turn brown at the edges.
  • Stir in capers, lemon juice, white wine, chicken base and water.
  • Stir to combine. Reduce to a simmer.
  • Adjust salt and pepper again; stir the parsley into the sauce.
  • Remove the chicken breasts to serving plates.
  • Serve the sauce over the chicken.
  • Garnish each serving with a lemon slice.
