Lemon Butter Sauce:

3 tablespoons lemon juice

4 ounces white wine

4 ounces heavy cream

1 pound (4 sticks) butter

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Chopped parsley leaves, for garnish


  1. Heat a small amount of oil and 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet. Dredge chicken in seasoned flour and saute in pan, turning once, until brown and cooked through. Remove chicken from pan. Add remaining ingredients, up to and including the capers, to the pan. Heat until mushrooms soften and are cooked. Add chicken back to pan to reheat and make Lemon Butter sauce.

  2. Slowly add butter, about 2 tablespoons at a time, until completely incorporated, whisking constantly. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and keep warm.
