This is my son's favorite dish. He is a very persnickety eater. Serve this chicken recipe over white rice.

  • Slice chicken breasts horizontally to yield 4 pieces. Place breasts between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound to 1/4-inch thin. Place flour on a plate and dredge each breast on both sides in flour.

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Put chicken into the skillet and season tops with salt and pepper. Turn when nicely browned, about 4 minutes, and season again. Cook second side until browned, about 4 minutes. Transfer breasts to a plate, reserving skillet drippings.

  • Add wine and lemon juice to the skillet, stirring to scrape up any browned bits. Simmer to reduce and thicken sauce, about 5 minutes more. Add capers and pour sauce over chicken breasts on the plate. Sprinkle with parsley.

I doubled the recipe and it turned out good. The lemon flavor is very strong so I think I will reduce the amount next time. Read More

It was easy but too lemony. I will make again but use 2 lemons vs 3. I also added fresh garlic and Italian seasoning while cooking the chicken. Read More

The chicken cooked up nicely; be careful not to overcook. This didn't make much sauce, so I would double it if serving with rice or noodles. Also, it is too much lemon juice for us. I would use some chicken broth to replace at least one of the lemons. Read More

This was great! I read reviews and saw the it was a little over lemony, so I halved the lemon juice, but it still came out a little strong (Type of lemon, maybe?). I think I will add a pat of butter to the sauce as it finishes. I kept the chicken in an oven at 200 degrees F while I made the sauce. Will make again! Read More

After reading the reviews I decided to use less lemon juice, and I'm glad I did. This is a nice recipe, and I'd make it again. Thanks, Sarah! Read More

I saw that the author said this is her son's favorite dish. I thought I would be able to persuade my oldest grandson Tyler to try something healthy while he was visiting so I made this. I stopped drinking 10 years ago due to my blood pressure so I had to swap the wine for vinegar. Tyler didn't like it and chose to eat a bowl of hersheys kisses for dinner instead. I thought it was quite delicious Read More
