Chicken Piccata is a great weeknight recipe because it’s easy and a great way to spruce up boneless, skinless chicken breast. It’s got a great lemon-y sauce, which is easy to make, and the addition of capers in this recipe give it a delicate salty balance.

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, halved horizontally
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1583889959623{margin-top: 10px !important;padding-left: 50px !important;}”][vc_column_text]METHOD[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Place chicken between plastic wrap and pound evenly until about 1/4 inch thick.

Spread flour in a shallow dish; season with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; whisk to combine. Place chicken in seasoned flour, turning to coat thoroughly, then tap off the excess.

Heat the oil and 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat until butter starts to sizzle. Cook the chicken in batches, if necessary, to avoid crowding the pan (the cutlets should fit snugly in a single layer) until golden and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes for each side. The cooking time will depend on the thickness of the cutlet. Transfer the chicken to a platter. Pour out any excess fat from the pan.

Return pan to medium heat and add wine, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Cook until the liquid is reduced by half, about 30 seconds. (If the liquid is reducing too quickly — before all the browned bits have been incorporated — remove the pan from the heat.) Remove the pan from the heat. Add lemon juice, capers, and remaining 2 tablespoons butter and swirl until melted and combined, then add parsley and season with salt as desired.

Immediately pour the sauce over the chicken, and serve.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1584215403674{margin-top: 25px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_separator color=”custom” border_width=”3″ accent_color=”#ffffff”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
