What to do

1. Butterfly the chicken breasts or cut them in half horizontally.

2. Mix the grated parmesan with some salt and pepper on a dinner plate & dredge the chicken to coat both sides.

3. Heat a tbsp of olive oil in a large frying pan and add a third of the butter (about 20g) over a medium>high heat. Sear the chicken on both sides and cook until golden (about 3-4 minutes each side). Remove from the pan and set aside.

4. Add the wine (if using) or a dash of the chicken stock to deglaze the pan, add the minced garlic and let it simmer for 3-4 minutes and reduce by about half. Then add the stock, lemon juice, capers and the rest of the butter, stirring until it begins to simmer again.

5. Add the chicken back to the pan. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and let it simmer for a couple of minutes until warmed through.

6. Plate up, and sprinkle with a handful of roughly chopped parsley leaves.

7. Serve with your favourite choice of side.

notes & tips

  • cooked temp to check your chicken is cooked properly, use a food thermometer at the thickest part of the meat - it should read 75 degrees c
