Directions:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
sprinkle with salt and pepper
spread cup all purpose flour on a plate
coat chicken on both sides with flour pressing on both sides
gently shake off

Put 1.5 tbls unsalted butter in heavy 10-12 skillet over medium high heat
Add 1.5 tbls olive oil and swirl together
Heat breasts until fragrant and nut-brown for about 4 minutes per side keeping the oils as hot as possible without burning. Use tongs to turn and cook another 3-5 minutes more.

Remove all but 2 tbls of the fat from the skillet
Add cup minced onions or shallots
Cook until softened, about 1 minute
Add cup dry white wine or vermouth
Boil scraping the bottom of the skillet with a wood spoon until wine is evaporated
Stir in: 1 pound tomatoes (2 cups) seeded and chopped, 2 tbls nonpareil capers-drained and 1 tbld minced garlic

Cook stirring constantly until tomatoes have given up their juice, creating a thick chunky puree, about 2 minutes. Add any extra juice from chicken in the ovens and boil the sauce until thick. Remove from heat and stir in: 1 tbl finely shredded basil, salt and pepper to taste. Spoon over the chicken and serve immediately.
