chicken piccata ingredients

chicken: Use boneless, skinless chicken breasts or 1/2-inch-thick chicken cutlets. If using whole chicken breasts, flatten to 1/2-inch thickness. Hammer.

Chicken Piccata Sauce – You need fresh lemons for the best flavor. Choose a dry white wine that is easy to drink. Cooking sake is not recommended.

extra flavor: Capers add a pop of saltiness and a little texture. If capers aren’t to your liking, feel free to substitute or add chopped olives, sun-dried tomatoes, or sautéed mushrooms.

  • Mix all purpose flour, lemon zest, salt and pepper in a shallow bowl. Dip chicken breasts in flour mixture and shake off excess flour.

  • Heat olive oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken in 2 batches for 4-5 minutes per side, or until just cooked through. Cook in batches to avoid overcrowding the skillet. Remove from pan and place on a plate to keep warm.

  • Using the same skillet, melt the butter. Whisk the flour until smooth and cook for 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Add chicken broth a little at a time, beating until smooth after each addition.

  • Add lemon juice, white wine, and capers. Simmer for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Return chicken to skillet and simmer in sauce for 2 to 3 minutes or until cooked through. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Add chopped parsley, mix and serve.

  • Use fresh lemon juice for best flavor.
  • Chicken piccata pairs well with long pasta such as linguini or angel hair pasta, but can also be eaten with mashed potatoes or rice pilaf.
  • You can also add fresh minced garlic to the butter in the skillet if desired.
  • Veal works well in this recipe.
  • Serve with roasted asparagus, steamed broccoli, or roasted cauliflower.
