Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Prep roasted garlic: Slice off the top of the head of garlic (about 1/4-inch). Drizzle the cut side with olive oil and roast until soft and slightly golden, about 40 minutes. Let cool, then remove cloves and set aside.

Season chicken with salt and pepper and then lightly dredge in flour. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat olive oil and 4 tablespoons of butter.

Cook chicken in batches until golden, about 3 minutes per side. Remove chicken and set aside.

Make sauce: Deglaze the pan with white wine. Add lemon juice, chicken stock, and capers and stir. Add the roasted garlic and bring to boil. Season with salt and pepper.

Add chicken into the sauce and simmer for 5 minutes more. In the last minute, add remaining tablespoon of butter.

Serve chicken over pasta. Garnish with parsley.
