    2-4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (1½ pounds total)

    blanched almond flour
    ½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
    ½ teaspoon all purpose chef's shake
    5 tablespoons grapeseed oil
    5 tablespoons olive oil

    1 cup
    chicken stock
    ¼ cup brined capers

    1. Cut the chicken breasts in half horizontally, butterflying them open --if the pieces are large, cut them each into two pieces after you cut them in half

    4. Rinse the chicken pieces in water, then dredge thoroughly in flour mixture, until well coated

    6. Transfer from pan to a plate, add the other breasts and cook, then remove from pan
    7. Place plate of chicken breasts in the oven while preparing the sauce
    8. Add lemon juice, chicken stock and capers to the pan and use a metal spatula to loosen the browned bits and incorporate them into the sauce
