THIS is a flavorful low-fat, low sodium dish. With the lemon juice ingredient, the salt isn’t missed. I usually serve this with rice or pasta, but it takes longer to cook either one of these than it does the chicken!

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons capers
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 thin lemon slices

Directions

Flatten chicken to 1/2-in. thickness. In a large plastic resealable bag, combine the flour, salt and pepper; add the chicken, one piece at a time. Seal bag and toss to coat.
In a small skillet, brown chicken in oil for 2-3 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Remove and keep warm.
Add wine and garlic to the pan; cook and stir for 30 seconds. Add the broth, lemon juice and capers. Bring to a boil; cook for 1-2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in butter and lemon slices. Return chicken to the pan; heat through. Yield: 2 servings.
