Chicken Piccata

Chicken Piccata
1 (4-ounce) chicken breast
15 Min

This easy chicken dish that hails from Italy gets its classic flavor from the splash of lemon, the elegance of white wine, and garden-fresh parsley.

What You'll Need

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (1 pound total), pounded to 1/4-inch thickness
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1 lemon, cut in half

What to Do

  1. Place the flour in a shallow dish. Place the beaten egg in another shallow dish. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Coat the chicken breasts with the flour, then dip in the egg.

  2. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken for 3 to 4 minutes per side, until golden.

  3. Add the wine and capers to the skillet and squeeze the lemon over the chicken. Cook for 2 to 4 more minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce begins to glaze the chicken.


Pounding the chicken so thin makes this cook up in no time - which means that even if you get last-minute guests, they'll think you fussed for hours!
