Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound to 1/2 inch thickness with a mallet or heavy duty skillet. Sprinkle both sides of chicken breast with salt and pepper. Put 1 tablespoon of flour into a small bowl, and place remaining flour into a shallow dish. Coat chicken in flower from dish and shake off excess. Place 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet and melt it on medium-high heat, then add 1 tablespoon oil. Put chicken in pan and saute 4 minutes on each side. Remove chicken from pan and keep warm. Heat remaining tablespoon of oil in pan, then add shallots and saute for 3 minutes with frequent stirring. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute with occasional stirring. Add wine, bring to a boil, and cook until liquid almost evaporates. Add 1/4 cup broth to 1 teaspoon flour from small bowl and stir until smooth. Add remaining broth to pan and bring to a boil. Cook about 5 minutes, then stir in flour mixture and cook until thick (about 1 minute) with frequent stirring. Remove from heat and stir in remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, juice, and capers. Top each chicken breast half with about 2 tablespoons of the sauce and sprinkle with parsley.
