  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the flour in a shallow bowl. Season the chicken breasts with salt, then gently press into the flour to coat; shake off the excess flour. Arrange the chicken in the skillet. Cook until golden brown, 7 to 10 minutes on each side. Add the white wine and lemon juice. Continue cooking until the chicken breasts are no longer pink in the center and the cooking liquid is reduced by half, 5 to 7 minutes more. Transfer the chicken to a plate.
  2. Remove the skillet from heat, and stir butter into the sauce until melted. Pour sauce over the chicken breasts, and garnish with capers and lemon wedges.

Nothing super special about this one....it is essentially chicken picatta. Good for a weekday entree imo.

I used butter flavored olive oil & did not add the extra butter. I also left out the capers. My whole family really liked it. Very lemony. If I make it again, I may add some cream and corn s...

My entire family loves this chicken. I have it with very light sauce over fresh spinach, as a salad, and my kids have it with pasta; we all love it.

I didn't have capers or white wine which was replaced with chicken stock. Overall, it turned out delish! Thank you for sharing!

This recipe was a great addition to our 'special dinners'. I seasoned the flour with a little smoked paprika & granulated garlic & switched out the regular lemons for Meyer lemons since they are...

We loved it. I doubled the sauce (wine/lemon) because we enjoy putting it on side dish as well.
