4 boneless chicken breast halves, pounded very thin

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Salt and pepper to taste

3 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup white wine

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 cup heavy whipping cream

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme

4 tablespoons capers, drained


Dredge chicken breasts in flour and season with salt and pepper

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat

Add chicken to skillet and cook over medium-high heat until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 10 minutes

Remove chicken from skillet, cover in aluminum foil to keep warm

Pour white wine into skillet and deglaze pan by scraping up all the brown bits from the bottom

Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes

Stir in cream, lemon juice, basil, parsley, dill, and thyme; bring to a boil

Reduce heat to medium-low

Cook, whisking constantly until sauce is reduced and has a creamy consistency, 3 to 5 minutes

Stir capers into sauce and heat for 1 to 2 minutes more

Plate chicken breasts and spoon sauce on top
