Chicken in Lemon-Caper Sauce

2 Tbsp. All Purpose Flour
1/2 tsp. Salt
4 (1/4 lb) Thin-Sliced Chicken Breasts
2 tsp. olive oil
1/2 c. reduced-sodium chicken broth
3 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp Capers, drained and chopped  (I put more in b/c I really like them)
1tsp unsalted butter
2 Tbsp copped fresh flat-leaf parsley


  1. Mix together flour and salt in pie plate. Dip Chicken in seasoned flour, shaking off excess.
  2. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, in batches, and cook until browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side; transfer to plate.
  3. Add broth, lemon juice, and capers to skillet; bring to boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer until slightly reduced, about 2 minutes. Return chicken to skillet and cook, turning to coat, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Transfer chicken to platter. Remove skillet from heat; add butter and parsley. Pour over chicken.
