02 Ingredients
    • Chopped parsley (optional)
    • 1 tbsp. brined capers
    • 1/2 cup chicken broth or dry white wine
    • 2 tbsp. olive oil
    • 5 tbsp. butter divided
    • Flour (for dredging)
    • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
    • Pepper to taste
    • Salt to taste
    • 2 tsp. lemon juice + zest of 1 lemon
    • 3 chicken breasts cut in half lengthwise
03 Method
  • Step 1
    Slice chicken breasts lengthwise (I butterfly then cut in half) to make thinner cutlets. Trim off any fat. Season chicken generously with salt and pepper, and lightly sprinkle with garlic powder. Dredge chicken in flour.
  • Step 2
    Add half the butter and the olive oil to the skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Step 3
    Cook chicken pieces for about 4-5 minutes per side until golden.
  • Step 4
    Remove chicken from skillet and place on a plate while the sauce is being made.
  • Step 5
    Deglaze the skillet with the chicken broth/wine, scraping up the brown bits, and then add lemon juice, lemon zest, and capers (discard the brine) to the skillet.
  • Step 6
    Add the remaining butter to skillet and cook for about a minute.
  • Step 7
    Add the chicken back into the skillet and cook chicken for another 5 minutes or until cooked through (I usually flip the chicken half way through the 5 minutes).
  • Step 8
    Garnish with freshly chopped parsley (optional).
