3.) Spoon 1 tbsp capers over each chicken breast, then sprinkle lemon peel evenly over both. Top each chicken breasts with two very thin wheels of lemon and a sprig of rosemary. Fold over foil and seal up tightly. Place packets in a baking dish (will save you clean up for any juices that leak out.

4.) Bake chicken in foil for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to sit for 2 minutes before opening. Plate each chicken breast with lemon and rosemary on top, then spoon small amount of broth left inside foil (getting as many of the capers as possible) over top each chicken breast.
