  • Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

4 (6-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 all-purpose flour
1tablespoon olive oil
1/4cup dry white wine or dry white vermouth
2/3cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
2tablespoons capers, rinsed and drained
4tablespoons chopped pitted Kalamata olives
1/2cup coarsely chopped fresh basil
2cups hot cooked spaghettini
Fresh lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Pound chicken between sheets of wax paper or plastic wrap to about 1/4-inch thick. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper and dredge in flour to coat lightly.
  2. Heat oil in a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side. Add wine and cook until reduced by about half, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium. Add chicken broth, capers, olives and basil.
  3. Cover and cook until chicken is tender, about 5 minutes. Place chicken over hot cooked spaghettini and spoon sauce, capers, olives and basil over chicken. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Serves 4.
