  4. Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken in a single layer.

  5. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through.

  6. Remove the chicken from the pan and cover to keep warm.

  7. Melt the butter in the pan. Add the flour and whisk for 1 minute.

  8. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Pour in the wine and bring to a simmer.

  9. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until the wine has reduced by half, whisking occasionally.

  10. Stir in the chicken broth and heavy cream. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until the sauce has just thickened. Turn the heat to low.

  11. Stir in the lemon juice, capers, salt, and pepper. Return the chicken to the pan. Spoon the sauce over the top, then sprinkle with chopped parsley.

  12. Serve, garnished with lemon wedges, and enjoy!
