    4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
    1/4 cup all-purpose flour (about 1 ounce)

    2 tablespoons capers
    2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic

Place each breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound to 1/2-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet.

Heat butter and oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add chicken, and cook for 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Add white wine, 1/4 cup lemon juice, capers, and garlic to pan; scrape pan to loosen browned bits. Cook until slightly thick.
