For each packet, PLACE one halved chicken breast in center of each foil sheet and arrange broccoli around it. SPREAD one teaspoon garlic over each chicken breast, then top with 1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese, 1/2 tablespoon of capers (optional) and top with two lemon slices. Add one tablespoon of butter on top of lemon slices.
