Chicken Scallopini

Pounding chicken thin allows this dish to cook quickly. The capers and white wine sauce pairs well with the lemon scented chicken. Delicious served over brown or wild rice and steamed veggies.

2 tsp fresh lemon juice
salt and black pepper, to taste
1/3 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
cooking spray
