4
boneless, skinless chicken breasts sliced thin
1 can(s)
campbells chicken broth condensed
1/3 c
fresh lemon juice ( about 1 large lemon or 2 small.)
1 1/2 Tbsp
drained capers rinsed
2 tsp
lemon zest
1
large bag frozen broccoli flowerettes
do not salt. the broth and capers are salty enough.

Directions Step-By-Step

Lightly flour chicken breasts.
3
Mix together broth, capers, zest and lemon juice in separate bowl. Set aside.
4
Melt 1/2 stick butter to saute pan and brown chicken breasts well. Remove from pan.
5
Add broth ingredients scraping up browned bit on bottom of pan. Place breasts back into pan and cook on the number 8 heat on an electric stove. You want a higher heat. Cook about 5 min until done. It will not take long to cook because the breasts are thin. Do not overcook or they will dry out. Plate the breasts and keep warm.
