  • Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 425°F.
  • Step 2
  • Make a lengthwise horizontal slice almost through each chicken breast and open each up like a book.
  • Step 3
  • Flatten the chicken with a meat mallet until it is 1/4" thick.

  • put the cheese, breadcrumbs, 3 Tbsp capers, lemon zest, and 1 Tbsp parsley in a mini chopper of food processor and pulse a few times to combine.
  • Step 5
  • Sprinkle the mixture on top of the chicken breasts.
  • Step 6
  • Fold each breast closed and secure with toothpicks.
  • Step 7
  • Sprinkle the breasts with salt and pepper.
  • Step 8
  • Heat 1 Tbsp butter and the oil in a large (12"), heavy-duty, oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat until the butter melts and starts to foam, about 2 minutes.
  • Step 9
  • Add the chicken and cook, without touching, until it browns and easily releases from the pan, about 2 minutes.

  • Step 15
