Chicken Scallopini

Prepare chicken breasts scallopini-style by pounding them into thin, quick-cooking servings, then dredge in lemon juice and breadcrumbs and sauté for about 3 minutes on each side. The white wine sauce with capers complements the flavor of the lemon juice, and makes a great topping for wild rice.

Ingredients

  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
