4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 5 oz. each)
Salt and pepper
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup white wine
1/4 cup capers, rinsed


Preheat oven to 200°F. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper and dredge in flour. Warm 1 Tbsp. butter and 2 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until butter foams. Add 2 chicken breast halves; cook until browned, 3 minutes. Flip chicken; cook until firm and browned on other side, 3 minutes longer. Transfer to a platter and loosely cover with foil.

Add 1 Tbsp. butter and 1 Tbsp. oil to skillet and repeat with remaining chicken. Add to platter, cover and place in oven.

Add lemon juice and wine to skillet and bring to a boil, scraping up browned bits from bottom of pan. Boil, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in capers and remaining 1 Tbsp. butter. Cook, stirring, until butter melts. Season with salt and pepper. Pour sauce over chicken and serve.
