Chicken Piccata

One night for dinner I made chicken piccata it is a really easy dish to make .
The measurements below are for 2 chicken breasts which have been pounded out. But I always make more chicken and sauce because it is so good.

1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup white wine
1/4 cup brined capers, rinsed
1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon lemon zest

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Dredge in flour. In a hot pan with olive oil and a little butter brown the chicken on both sides. At this point the chicken is not cooked , but transfer to a plate and make the sauce. The chicken will finish in the sauce.

Combine lemon juice, chicken stock , white wine and lemon zest allow this mixture to boil until it begins to thicken. Then add capers and the chicken back into the pan. Allow chicken to simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes. Sprinkles with fresh parsley and serve.
