1. Roll lemon on flat surface under palm to get the juices out of the pulp. Slice or chop garlic, set aside.

2. Slice each chicken breast into large strips.

3. On a large plate or piece of wax paper, mix about 1/2 cup of flour with salt, pepper and about 1 tsp spices such as rosemary and thyme.

4. Roll each chicken slice or tenderloin in flour to coat. Set aside.

5. In large skillet, heat 1 TB olive oil on medium high.

6. Add garlic and cook for about 2 minutes, being careful not to burn. Add chicken to skillet and cook on each side until golden brown.

7. When browned, add juice of half a lemon, about half a cup of wine and 2-3 tablespoons of capers.
