1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 200°F and place a serving platter into the oven to warm.

Salt & pepper the  chicken pieces and dredge them in flour. Shake off excess flour. Heat the STAR Original Garlic Oil in a skillet on medium heat; pan-fry the chicken pieces until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Work in batches adding oil as needed. Put the chicken pieces onto the warmed platter in the oven.  When the chicken is done, drain most of the oil from the skillet, leaving a thin coating on the surface.

Pour the chicken broth into the skillet. Scrape and dissolve any brown bits from the bottom of the skillet. Stir in the lemon slices and bring the mixture to a boil. Let cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce reduces to about 2/3 cup, 5 to 8 minutes. Add the lemon juice and STAR Capers; simmer until the sauce is reduced and slightly thickened, about 5 minutes more. Add the parsley and remove from heat.

Arrange the chicken on a platter and spoon sauce over top. Serve with rice or mashed potatoes.
