Recipe - Chicken Piccata

This is a little recipe we stumbled across on a card displayed in Woolworths - it was a Margaret Fulton recipe. 

4 chicken breast fillets
Plain flour
Salt & pepper
30g unsalted butter
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup white wine
Juice of 1 large lemon
2 tbps chopped capers
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
To serve : steamed pototoes and green beans

Slice the chicken breast across the length to you have 2 thin slices from each breast
Coat chicken pieces lightly in flour and shake off excess
Heat half the butter with 1 tbsp olive oil in a large frypan over medium heat and cook half the chicken pieces for approx 4 minutes, turning once
Place first batch onto a plate and cover while repeating for second batch
Remove chicken from pan and add the wine to the remaining juices in the pan, stir until reduced by half
Add lemon juice, capers & parsley
Add 1/4 cup water if reduced too far and mix well while re-heating
Pour sauce over chicken to serve with steamed potatoes and green beans
