Pound the chicken flat between plastic wrap. (I use a ziploc bag). Dredge chicken though flour seasoned with pepper. Heat olive oil in shallow frying pan and brown chicken on both sides. Deglaze pan with white wine (take off heat) scraping pan for all the goodies, add chicken broth, lemon and caper. Cover and simmer until done.
