Recipe by Lisawas
"Affectionately referred to as 'flat chicken' by my family, this recipe is a favorite! My mom would make it once a week and now my kids and I carry on the tradition. It is flavorful, easy and goes well with rice or pasta."

My kids love this recipe and often, they help make it.
It was pounded chicken with capers on top. Nothing special. If you like capers, it is good -- capers on chicken.
This was tasty. I used panko bread crumbs, added salt and pepper to the chicken and pan fried in a mixture of olive oil and butter until golden brown and cooked through.
I squeezed lemon juice onto the chicken along with the caper juice and served it with salad.
Super easy and delicious to make!
I used chicken tenders and left the capers out. Yummy! :)
Yummy! Everyone in my family likes this lemony chicken. I served it over Trader Joe's lemon pepper pasta. A real hit! Will make again and again.
Loved this recipe. I had done a couple of tweaks to it. I floured the chicken before I dipped the chicken into the egg then bread crumbs. I also did as one of the other reviews had suggested. After I cooked all the chicken I added about 1 tsp. of butter into the non-stick fry pan to which I added 1 tsp. flour. Once incorporated I added about ¼ cup milk, cappers, 1 tbsp. capper juice and 1 tsp. lemon juice. Mixed and allowed to simmer for a couple of minutes. Family loved it thanks Lisawas for this recipe. Will be doing again.
Made recipe exactly like offered with one change:
Made a lemon caper cream sauce with heavy cream and drizzled it over the top. Awesome.
