Yield: 4 servings
2 skinless + boneless organic chicken breasts, butterflied + then cut in half Sea salt
Ground black pepper
All-purpose flour (I use: Bob's Red Mill brand - organic + non-gmo)
6 tablespoons unsalted butter (I use: Miyoko's plant based butter but this time I used Califia Farms plant butter w/ avocado oil)
5 tablespoons Avocado Oil (I love the Primal Kitchen brand) Enter my 10% OFF coupon code at checkout: DEROSA10
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice (I use: Santa Cruz Organic brand)
1/2 cup Vegetable stock (I use: 365 Whole Foods brand)
1/4 cup brined capers, rinsed
1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1. Season chicken with salt + pepper. Dredge chicken in flour + shake off excess.
2. In a large skillet over medium high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter with 3 tablespoons olive oil. When butter + oil start to sizzle, add 2 pieces of chicken + cook for 3 minutes. When chicken is browned, flip + cook other side for 3 minutes. Remove + transfer to plate. Melt 2 more tablespoons butter + add another 2 tablespoons olive oil. When butter + oil start to sizzle, add the other 2 pieces of
chicken + brown both sides in same manner.
Remove pan from heat + add chicken to the plate.
3. Into the pan add the lemon juice, stock + capers. Return to stove + bring to boil, scraping up brown bits from the pan for extra flavor. Check for seasoning. Return all the chicken to the pan + simmer for 5 minutes. Remove chicken to platter. Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter to sauce + whisk vigorously. Pour sauce over chicken + garnish with parsley.
4. For sides, I made turnip mash (mixed potatoes + turnips together) + bok choy. You can make whatever sides you like!
