  1. Place each chicken breast between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap. Pound breasts to 1/2-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet.
  2. Spread flour into a wide, shallow dish. Press chicken into flour to coat completely.
  3. Melt butter with olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; cook chicken in hot butter mixture until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Remove chicken from skillet to a serving platter and cover with a lid to keep warm.
  4. Pour white wine, lemon juice, capers, and garlic into the pan. Bring the liquid to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food from the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon; cook at a boil until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Season the mixture with salt and pepper.
  5. Drizzle sauce over and around the chicken; garnish with parsley.

I tried this recipe tonight. Followed the recipe. My boyfriend and I thought it was way too tart. If you are going to try this recipe I would cut the lemon and capers back significantly.
