I am not sure where I found this recipe, but I've made a a billion times now. It's not really one you can ever get tired of! I like to serve this with Zee Merchant's Spinach Rice -

  • 2 lemons, washed
  • 4 chicken breasts, large, skinless, boneless
  • 1/2 cup flour, all purpose (or more as needed. can substitute non-gluten flour just fine.)
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup green olives, sliced and pitted (sicilian or other brine-cured green olives)
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained (if you are a caper freak, adding more doesn't throw off any balance)
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock (homemade, or canned broth works fine)
  • 1/4 cup butter, 1/2 stick, cut into 4 pieces (1/4 cup benecol or smart balance work just fine for this.)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
