Wash and dry chicken cutlets. Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides and dip them in flour to coat lightly. Heat the oil in a non stick frying pan. Brown the cutlets lightly on both sides on medium high
heat. Do not overcook.

Place cutlets in a dish when all done. In the same pan add the garlic and saute for a few seconds, then add the capers, peppers and pignoli and saute everything for a minute or so, add the wine, adjust the seasonoing and put the chicken back in the pan.

Cook everything together for about 2 minutes until sauce thickens. Place chicken in a serving platter and pour all that wonderful sauce over it.
