Ingredients
  1. 1 pound spaghetti
  2. 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut crosswise in half
  3. Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  4. 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  5. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  6. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  7. 1/4 cup diced shallots
  8. 3/4 cup chicken broth
  9. 1/4 cup dry white wine*
  10. Juice of 1 lemon
  11. 1/2 cup heavy cream
  12. 1/4 cup capers, drained
  13. 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
Instructions
  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.
  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper, to taste. Working one at a time, dredge chicken in flour.
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook, flipping once, until cooked through, about 4-5 minutes on each side. Set aside and keep warm.
  4. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in the skillet. Add garlic and shallots, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  5. Stir in chicken broth, wine and lemon juice. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly reduced, about 5 minutes.
