Chicken Piccata

Chicken Piccata

Chicken Piccata is a dish that sounds fancy and complicated but it isn't.  It is actually a very simple dish to make, with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry.

This dish was restaurant quality!  It would be a great dish for a dinner party.  It was super easy to put together and turned out delicious. I served mine over angel hair pasta. I doubled the lemon and wine for the sauce - we like lots to go on the pasta! This will be a regular meal at our house.

(Printable Recipe)

  • 4 - 6 boneless, skinless chicken cutlets
  • 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 cup chicken stock or white wine
  • 6 Tbsp lemon juice
  • dash red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1/4 cup brined capers

Mix together the flour, salt, pepper, and grated Parmesan. Rinse the chicken pieces in water. Dredge them thoroughly in the flour mixture.

Heat olive oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet on medium high heat. Add half of the chicken pieces to the skillet. Brown well on each side, about 3 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the pan and reserve on a plate. Repeat with remaining chicken. Cover plate with aluminum foil and keep warm in the oven while you prepare the sauce.

Add the chicken stock (or white wine), garlic, lemon juice, and capers to the pan. Reduce the sauce by half. Whisk in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Plate the chicken and serve with the sauce poured over the chicken. Serve over cooked pasta if desired.

  1. I made this tonight for Pete and I and it was spectacular!! This will become a regular in our house. It was so simple to make!


  2. Absolutely sandbox is being enjoyed by kids! After playing definitely their stomach will find something to eat. I found www.gourmetrecipe.com and www.foodiamond.com wherein variety of recipes is featured. You can choose which recipe you can prepare for your kids. They have recipes for snacks and main course as well.

  3. This dish is absolutely delicious!! But, one question...how do I keep the chicken from turning dark brown when the oil is cooking? I used canola oil, instead of olive oil. Would that have made the difference?

  4. Love this recipe, my family scarfed it!! Thank you!

  5. How can I post pictures? New to Pinterest :)

  6. I saw the garlic listed in the ingredients, but never saw it used in the actual recipe. Did I miss something?
