-In a non stick pan, add the olive oil , heat the pan and oil on medium heat, add the chicken breasts (note- you can add more olive oil if it seems too dry for you, I try to keep it on the lighter side) Brown the chicken on both sidesfullsizeoutput_22.jpeg

-When chicken breasts are golden brown on both sides, remove and place on a dish while you deglaze the pan.  Turn the heat slightly higher, add the wine then the lemon juice, stir to release the crusty pieces off the bottom.  Add the capers.  Let the sauce reduce a bit. fullsizeoutput_23.jpeg
