    4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
    1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
    1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1/2 tsp. dried basil

Heat 2 Tbsp. olive oil in skillet over medium heat. Add chicken. Cook 4 minutes per side or until no pink remains. Transfer to plates.

Add remaining 2 Tbsp. olive oil to skillet. Cook green beans in oil 4 minutes, or until crisp-tender; add lemon slices for the last minute of cooking. Transfer to plates.

Add lemon juice and capers to skillet; heat through. Drizzle on chicken.
