For the chicken
Cut each chicken breast in half lengthwise. If your chicken breasts are labeled thin cut, you can skip this step.

Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium high heat. Add the chicken in a single layer. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side or until golden brown and cooked through.
Remove the chicken from the pan and cover to keep warm.

For the sauce
Melt the butter in the pan. Add the flour and whisk for 1 minute.
Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
Pour in the wine and bring to a simmer. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until wine has reduced by half, whisking occasionally.
Stir in the chicken broth and heavy cream. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until sauce has just thickened, Turn the heat to low.
Stir in the lemon juice, capers and salt and pepper.
Return the chicken to the pan. Spoon the sauce over the top. Sprinkle with chopped parsley. Serve, garnished with lemon wedges if desired.
