Tangy roasted lemons harmonize beautifully with chicken. They are also delicious chopped and sprinkled over fish.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate the roasted lemons (Step 1) for up to 2 days.
- For the Roasted Lemons:
- 3 medium lemons, thinly sliced and seeded
- 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- For the Chicken:
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 pound total), trimmed
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- Freshly ground pepper, to taste
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 1/4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons drained capers, rinsed
- 2 teaspoons butter
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, divided
FOR THE ROASTED LEMONS:
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange the lemon slices in a single layer on it. Brush the lemon slices with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon salt. Roast the lemons until slightly dry and beginning to brown around the edges, 25 to 30 minutes.
FOR THE CHICKEN:
Cover the chicken with plastic wrap and pound with a rolling pin or heavy skillet until flattened to about 1/2-inch thick. Sprinkle the chicken with the salt and pepper. Place the flour in a shallow dish and dredge the chicken to coat both sides; shake off the excess (discard any remaining flour).
Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Add the broth and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits. Stir in the capers. Boil until the liquid is reduced to syrup consistency, 5 to 8 minutes, turning the chicken halfway. Add the roasted lemons, butter, 2 tablespoons parsley and more pepper, if desired; simmer until the butter melts and the chicken is cooked through, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a platter. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon parsley and serve.
