  • 1 cup all purpose flour

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon oil. 3. Saute chicken for 3 minutes on each side. (Do not crowd pan, cook in batches if necessary) 4. Put chicken aside, wipe out skillet, and add another tablespoon of olive oil. 5.

Season with salt and pepper. 7. Nestle chicken into sauce. Thinly slice one lemon and top chicken with lemon slices, capers and parsley. 8. Bring back to simmer and serve.

Notes

If you prefer a sweeter sauce you can add more honey!
