Chicken with Roasted Lemons, Green Olives and Capers
  • Roasted Lemons:
  • 12 thin lemon slices (from 2 lemons)
  • Olive oil
  • Chicken:
  • 4 large skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • All purpose flour
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup pitted sliced green Sicilian olives or other brine-cured green olives
  • 2 tablespoons drained capers
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock or canned low salt chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, cut into 4 pieces
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  1. For Roasted Lemons:
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange lemon slices in single layer on prepared sheet. Brush lemon slices with olive oil, sprinkle lightly with salt. Roast until slightly dry and beginning to brown around edges, about 25 minutes.
  3. For Chicken:
  4. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Dredge chicken in flour to coat both sides, shake off excess. Heat 5 tablespoons oil in heavy large skillet over high heat. Add chicken and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Stir in olives and capers. Add stock and bring to boil, scraping up browned bits from bottom of skillet. Boil until liquid is reduced to syrup consistency, turning chicken over after 3 minutes, about 5 minutes. Add butter, roasted lemon slices, and 2 tablespoons parsley, simmer until butter melts, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to platter. Sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon parsley
