Serving Size:2|Prep Time:10minutes|Cook Time:5-10minutes

  1. Butterfly chicken breast and put between two sheets of plastic wrap. Pound to ½ inch thickness with a meat mallet or rolling pin. Ideally you want the entire piece of chicken an even thickness throughout.
  2. In a shallow dish or rimmed plate mix together the flour and rice flour. Season both sides of chicken lightly with salt and pepper and dredge lightly in flour mixture .
  3. Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil and 1 tablespoon butter, swirling the pan until the butter is melted and starts to foam up.
  4. Add the chicken and cook without moving too much, about 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove chicken to a plate or keep warm in a low oven.
  5. Drain all but 1 tablespoon of fat. Return skillet to medium heat. Add shallots and sauté briefly until fragrant and beginning to soften about 1 minute.
  6. Add chicken stock or wine and reduce slightly. Then add the lemon juice and capers and simmer for a minute or so to reduce liquid to a syrupy consistency.
  7. Whisk in the remaining 1 tablespoon butter.
  8. Add parsley and spoon sauce generously over top of the chicken.
