This Italian dish illustrates the cooking technique known as panfrying. Boneless, skinless chicken breasts are pounded into tender cutlets for even cooking and quickly panfried. Then a flavorful sauce is prepared in the same pan.

Ingredients:

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, each 8 to 9 oz., cut in half horizontally and pounded 1/4 inch thick
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbs. olive oil
  • 3 Tbs. unsalted butter
  • 1 Tbs. minced shallot
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 3 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 Tbs. capers, drained
  • 2 Tbs. minced fresh flat-leaf parsley

Directions:

Season the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. Place the flour in a shallow bowl and dredge the chicken in it. Shake off the excess.

In the nonstick fry pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 Tbs. of the olive oil. Place 2 pieces of chicken in the pan and cook, turning once, until browned on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter or individual plates. Warm the remaining 1 Tbs. oil in the pan and repeat to brown the remaining chicken.

Reduce the heat to medium and melt 1 Tbs. of the butter in the pan. Add the shallot and cook until softened and golden brown, about 30 seconds. Add the wine, lemon juice and broth, increase the heat to medium-high and cook until the liquid is slightly reduced, about 5 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the remaining 2 Tbs. butter, the capers and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle the sauce over the chicken and pass any remaining sauce alongside. Serve immediately. Serves 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Flavors I love to order chicken piccata in restaurants and now I finally have a recipe that delivers the same great flavor! I tripled the recipe for all items (except the wine) and it turned out great. Thanks WS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chicken Piccata Wow! What a great recipe! If you are into lemon (and we are) then this is the one you've been searching for. I doubled the recipe and my lemon only yielded 5T. Still, it was enough. I think 6T really would be pushing the envelope. I had whole wheat angel hair pasta prepared from a previous meal and together they are delicious. WARNING: Don't judge the sauce UNTIL you bring it up with the salt & pepper. It does make ALL the difference. Again, the perfect pairing is the pasta as it is the perfect laid-back complement to this standout sauce.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Quick I made this tonight and I'm not one for spending a lot of time prepping for dinner. This didn't take too much preparation. It was quick to cook as well. I would definitely use less lemon. Its very over-powering. VERY.
