Preparation

Step 1

Season chicken with pepper. Dredge in flour. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the chicken and cook 2 minutes per side until brown. Transfer to a plate

Add the lemon juice, chicken stock, and cappers and bring to a simmer, scraping the browned bits from the bottom of the pan.

Return the chicken to the pan along with the spinach. Cover and cook 1 minute more, turning once until the chicken is cooked through and the spinach has wilted. Add the butter or margarine and stir to combine. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
