Slice the chicken breast in half horizontally, butterflying them open. In a shallow bowl, mix together the flour, salt, and pepper. Coat the pieces of chicken in the flour mixture and set to the side.
Take a large skillet on medium heat and add olive oil and butter to the pan. Add the chicken to the hot pan, cooking for about 3 minutes on each side.

When the sauce is ready, plate the chicken and serve with the sauce right on top of it. Garnish with chopped parsley and lemons.
