  • 2melt butter in frying pan
  • 3season chicken with salt and pepper, and dredge them in flour shake off extra flour
  • 4fry chicken until golden brown on both sides, work in batches and do not crowd pan. (I place chicken on a paper towel lined plate and keep it the microwave until all chicken is fried)
  • 5after all chicken is fried, drain any extra butter but leaving all the brown bits in the pan, stir in garlic and cook for about 20 second. Pour in chicken broth. Scrape the bottom of the pan so to get all the brown bits off the bottom of the skillet. Stir in lemon slices and bring to a boil. Let it cook until it reduces down and starts to thicken. Add lemon juice and capers and reduce until sauce starts to thicken slightly, add butter stir sauce until butter is melted. remove from heat add parsley.
