This is a SUPER quick-to-make meal. I pound the chicken breasts down a little bit so they are thin enough to cook up quickly. Great weeknight meal.

Ingredients:

1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon pepper, divided
4 (4-ounce) skinned, boned chicken breast halves
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1/3 cup extra-dry vermouth
3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 Tablespoons capers
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Directions:

1. Sprinkle 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper over chicken. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 6 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from skillet. set aside; keep warm.

2. Add 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, vermouth, lemon juice and capers to skillet, scraping skillet to loosen browned bits. Cook until reduced to 1/4 cup (about 2 minutes). Stir in parsley.

3. Spoon sauce over chicken to serve.
