Cut the chicken breasts in half. Place them between 2 pieces of saran wrap and pound to about 1/4 inch thick.
Season with salt and pepper and coat them lightly with the flour in a bowl.
Heat the olive oil and butter on high heat in a large saute pan. Cook the chicken on medium high heat for about 3 minutes or longer on each side until they turn a light golden brown, remove them from the pan and set them aside.
De-glaze the pan with wine, lemon juice and chicken broth and let it cook down for about 1 minute.
Return the chicken to the pan and let it cook in the lemon sauce for another 3-4 minutes on medium heat to incorporate the lemon flavor.
Turn heat to low, add the scallion, oregano and the lemon zest and cook for about 1 minute. The sauce will thicken as it cooks.
If you find the sauce too thick add a little more chicken broth.
