Chicken Piccata

Pin It

Chicken Piccata is an Italian classic that will impress your family and friends.  It is super easy and quick.  Here are the ingredients:

4 chicken breasts, pounded thin
1 cup PLUS 2 tablespoons flour
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup chicken stock
1 pound mushrooms, sliced
1 shallot, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
Capers, optional
Fresh parsley

Begin by heating up the olive oil and butter in a saute pan.  Make sure your chicken breast is pounded/cut into thin, flat pieces.  Mix 1 cup of the flour, salt and pepper.  Dredge the chicken in the flour and brown the chicken on both sides.
Remove from the pan and keep warm.  If you need to add a little more butter/olive oil you can.  Add the garlic, shallots and mushrooms. 
Add two tablespoons flour.  Stir.  Slowly add in the chicken stock and fresh lemon juice.  When the sauce begins to thicken, add the chicken back in.  Stir in the fresh parsley and capers.

Serve with pasta or fresh vegetables.
