Ingredients

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, about ½ inch thick

  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ⅛ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ cup butter

  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • Lemon slices for garnish

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, beat the egg together with 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice. Set aside.

  3. Melt the butter in a large pan and brown the coated chicken pieces about 4 minutes per side. Set aside.
