black pepper 1/4 tsp
olive oil 2 Tbsps
unsalted butter 3 Tbsps
caper 2 Tbsps drained

  3. Sprinkle half the mixture over the chicken breasts.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan over medium high heat.
  5. Add 1/3 of the butter.
  6. Fry the chicken for 2 minutes on one side. Sprinkle with the remaining salt and pepper. Flip and fry for an additional 2 minutes. Remove.

  8. Increase the heat to high and stir continuously for about 1 minute to reduce the sauce and increase the flavor. Spoon over the plated chicken and serve.
