  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 lemon slices (optional)

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a small bowl stir together broth and cornstarch; set aside. Using the flat side of a meat mallet, flatten chicken between two pieces of plastic wrap until ½ inch thick. In a shallow dish stir together flour, salt and pepper. Dip chicken into flour mixture, turning to coat.
  2. In a 12-inch nonstick skillet heat oil over medium-high. Add chicken; cook 8 to 9 minutes or until done (165°F), turning once. Remove from skillet; keep warm. If desired, add lemon slices to skillet. Cook 30 to 60 seconds or until brown, turning once. Remove from skillet.
  3. For sauce, in skillet melt butter over medium. Add garlic; cook and stir 30 seconds. Carefully add wine. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until slightly thick, stirring to scrape up crusty brown bits. Stir in cornstarch mixture. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer 1 minute or until thick. Stir in lemon juice, capers and thyme.
  4. Drizzle chicken with sauce and top with lemon slices and additional thyme.
