Dinner in "a snap" - Chicken Scarpariello

Chicken Scarpariello is a fabulous dish which is easy to prepare and delicious! Several years ago a friend introduced this dish to me and it has been a staple in The RQ's kitchen ever since as well as a favorite of Little Brother.

Shopping List-
2 boneless chicken breasts, flour to dredge w/ salt & pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
red pepper flakes to taste
3 Tblsp. parsley
3-4 Tblsp. butter
1/3 cup white wine
juice of one lemon
3 Tblsp. capers
Freshly grated Italian Cheese

Cut breasts into cube size pieces. Dredge in flour, salt, pepper. Fry over med-hi heat in 1 Tblsp. oil in skillet on stove (non-stick preferrable) till nicely browned all sides. Remove chicken to heatproof bowl and cover. Add butter to skillet, garlic and red pepper flakes. Saute 30 seconds. Deglaze w wine. Return chicken to pan, add capers cover and simmer on med-hi for 5 min. Sprinkle with parsley and freshly grated Italian cheese of choice. ENJOY!
