2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon capers
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped plus more for garnish
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, about ¾ pounds

In small bowl stir together lemon juice, capers, parsley. Put breasts in zip-top plastic bag or between 2 sheets of plastic wrap; pound into ¼-inch thickness. Dredge chicken in flour, patting off any excess. In large nonstick skillet over medium heat, warm 1 tablespoon of butter until melted. Add chicken to pan, sauteing until golden, about 3 minutes per side. Remove to dinner plates. Reduce heat to low; add remaining tablespoon butter to pan. Stir until melted; add lemon juice mixture, continuing to stir until hot. Spoon sauce over each chicken. Serve immediately.
