4. Transfer chicken to a plate and cover loosely with foil. Repeat for the other 2 pieces of chicken.

5. Add capers, sundried tomatoes, and garlic to the pan. Sautee on medium heat for about 30 seconds.

7. Bring to a simmer and cook until slightly thick and reduced to about 1/2 cup – this takes 10 to 15 minutes.

8. Return chicken into the pan with the sauce, let simmer until chicken is heated through, and spoon sauce over chicken for about 30 seconds to a minute.
