READY IN: 50mins




  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees; place a heat-proof platter (or casserole dish) in oven.
  • Pour flour onto a plate. Coat both sides of chicken breast halves in flour; shake off excess.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in 12-inch heavy-bottom skillet over medium-high heat. Saute half the chicken (without moving) until lightly browned on first side, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Turn and cook until second side is lightly browned and chicken is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer chicken to heated platter or casserole dish and return to oven.
  • Repeat with remaining oil and chicken.
  • In same skillet, saute garlic about 10 seconds; add broth and lemon slices. Increase heat to high. Scrape skillet bottom with wooden spoon to loosen any browned bits. Simmer about 10 minutes to reduce liquid.
  • Add lemon juice and capers and simmer about 5 more minutes.
  • Remove pan from heat and stir in butter until it melts and sauce thickens. Blend in parsley.
  • Spoon sauce over chicken and serve.
