  1. Butterfly the chicken breast and pound it thin. Salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Dredge each piece in flour, shaking off the excess.
  3. In a skillet over high heat, melt three Tbsp. butter, and brown the chicken, the browner and crispier the better, 3–5 minutes on each side.
  4. Remove chicken from the skillet, and, in the same pan, add chicken stock, lemon, and capers.
  5. Boil until the sauce reduces by ⅓, and return the chicken to the skillet.
  6. Spoon sauce over the chicken several times.
  7. Serve immediately, with the remaining sauce poured over the chicken.
  8. Enjoy!
