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
How to Make It
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.
VERY easy to make & it TASTES TERRIFIC!! My super-picky husband LOVES it and asks me to make it often. Works great as a special occasion meal as well since it comes out looking like you slaved over the dish (when in reality, it truly is QUICK & EASY)!!
Keep in mind that the more even the thickness of the breasts, the easier it is to evenly cook them.
The only thing I would suggest is to double up on the sauce part. Don't get me wrong, the recipe makes a decent amount. We just like having extra so it can be served on top of angel hair (or such) to flavor/moisten it as well (like in a restaurant).
