Chicken Piccata

This is an easy dish to prepare with simple ingredients. However, you must like capers. I cannot say enough good things about capers. Whenever I have this dish at a restaurant there are never enough capers on it. For some reason they are treated like little nuggets of gold. That is one reason to make it at home. Also I only purchase the large capers so I get more of the flavor of them. I added a simple steamed vegetable medley of baby carrots, yellow and zucchini squash.

Chicken Piccata with Steamed Vegetables

  • One chicken breast pounded out flat
  • Flour to dredge the chicken breast in
  • Juice of one half of a lemon
  • 1 Tbsp of butter
  • 1 Tbsp of olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp of white wine
  • 1 Tbsp large capers
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Pound out the chicken breast on a cutting board until it is flat and dredge it in white flour to coat it on both sides. Add olive oil and butter to a saute’ pan. Add the chicken breast to the pan and cook until it turns golden brown on both sides. Remove the breast from the pan and add the white wine to the sauce in the saute’ pan and stir it in. Then add the capers and warm them in the pan. Add the lemon juice to the pan. Pour the sauce over the chicken breast and serve immediately.
