Directions:
Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Dredge the chicken lightly in flour. In a large skillet, melt 2 TAB of butter with 2 TAB of oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook just until brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to a plate.

Add the broth, lemon juice and capers to the same pan. Bring the broth mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, scraping up the brown bits from the pan for flavor. Return the chicken to the pan and simmer until just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer chicken to a platter and whisk the remaining 2 TAB of butter into the sauce. Pour sauce over the chicken.
