Easy Chicken Piccata

 I'm a huge fan of chicken piccata.  Love that it's easy to make and is delicious too! This easy recipe came from- you guessed it-Kraft Foods.  considering I've already made 10 recipes from their most recent magazine issue, I would say it was totally worth the subscription!  I made a few changes to this recipe (noted below) and was very pleased with how it came out.  Enjoy!

what you need

   3 large lemons, divided
4 small  boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 lb.)
1/4 cup KRAFT Mayo with Olive Oil Reduced Fat Mayonnaise  (I used one egg)
22   RITZ Crackers, finely crushed (about 1 cup)
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp.  chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 Tbsp.  butter

CUT 4 thin lemon slices from half of 1 lemon; squeeze juice from remaining lemons. Coat chicken with mayo, then cracker crumbs.
HEAT oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 5 min. Turn; cook on medium heat 5 min. or until chicken is golden brown on both sides and done (165ºF). Transfer chicken to platter; sprinkle with parsley. Cover to keep warm. Carefully wipe any crumbs from skillet with paper towel.
ADD lemon juice and broth to skillet; cook on medium-high heat 6 to 8 min. or until slightly reduced, stirring occasionally. Add butter, lemon slices and capers; cook and stir on low heat 3 to 4 min. or until butter is melted and lemons are heated through. Serve over chicken.
