  • 3 chicken fillets – halved lengthwise to form 6 pieces
  • ⅓ cup flour
  • 60 grams of butter
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3-4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • 3-4 tablespoons capers
  • handful chopped Italian parsley
  • salt and pepper to season

Notes from Rouba

  • Be sure to pat the chicken dry before seasoning and coating it with flour to ensure a crispy crust.
  • Don’t skip the capers – they add a delicious tang to the dish!
  • Serve with a refreshing salad of mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, and cucumbers or with a side of fluffy rice.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley and lemon wedges for a pop of colour and freshness.


Step 1.

Slice each chicken breast fillet in half lengthways to form 6 pieces. Season the chicken fillets with salt and pepper.

Heat ½ of the butter plus 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium-high heat in a large frying pan. Lightly flour the chicken, shaking off excess flour. Add the chicken to the pan and brown on one side for approximately 3-4 minutes. Reduce heat slightly, turn the chicken over, cover with a lid, and cook for a further 3-4 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove and rest on a wire rack.

Step 2.

Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and deglaze the pan with the chicken stock. Add the butter lemon, capers, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Stir for 1-2 minutes until well combined and the sauce thickens slightly. Return the chicken to the pan to heat through.
