Serves 4


4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 3/4 – 1″ thickness)

salt and pepper to taste


Pinch of ground thyme

1/4 cup capers drained

Fresh parsley and basil for garnish

1 lb thin spaghetti pasta


1. Heat butter and oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Season flour with salt, pepper and chopped fresh basil. Add thyme, salt and pepper to each side of the chicken breasts, then dredge in the seasoned flour.
