Step 1

Mix together flour and salt in pie plate. Dip chicken in seasoned flour, shaking off excess.

Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, in batches, and cook until browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side; transfer to plate.

Add broth, lemon juice, and capers to the skillet; bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer until slightly reduced, about 2 minutes.

Return chicken to skillet and cook, turning to coat, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Transfer chicken to platter. Remove skillet from heat: add butter and parsley. Pour over chicken and serve.
