Preheat a grill pan or outdoor grill to medium-high heat. Brush the grill grate or pan with canola oil. Season 4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts with 2 teaspoons of lemon pepper seasoning and set on the grill, cooking for four to five minutes on each side. Arrange the fully-cooked chicken breasts on a platter.

In a separate medium-sized skillet, heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add 1 diced shallot and 1 tablespoon of chopped garlic to the pan, and saute for two minutes. Add 2 tablespoons of capers and 1 cup of white wine or chicken stock to the pan, then simmer until reduced by half. With a whisk, mix in 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard and 2 tablespoons of freshly-chopped parsley leaves. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Simmer for one minute, then take off the heat and mix in 2 tablespoons of sour cream. Apply a dollop of the sauce to each chicken breast and serve.
