Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 can (18 oz) Progresso™ Recipe Starters™ creamy roasted garlic with chicken stock cooking sauce
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried parsley

How to Make It

  1. Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/2 inch thick. In small shallow dish, mix flour with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; dip each chicken breast into flour mixture, coating all sides.

  3. Pour sauce mixture over chicken; sprinkle with parsley and capers. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 to 10 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F). Serve with pasta.
