Chicken Piccata
Level: Easy
Total: 40 min
Prep: 15 min
Cook: 25 min
Yield: 4 servings


2 skinless and boneless chicken breasts, butterflied and then cut in half
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
All-purpose flour, for dredging
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup brined capers, rinsed
1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped


Season chicken with salt and pepper. Dredge chicken in flour and shake off excess.

In a large skillet over medium high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter with 3 tablespoons olive oil. When butter and oil start to sizzle, add 2 pieces of chicken and cook for 3 minutes. When chicken is browned, flip and cook other side for 3 minutes. Remove and transfer to plate. Melt 2 more tablespoons butter and add another 2 tablespoons olive oil. When butter and oil start to sizzle, add the other 2 pieces of chicken and brown both sides in same manner. Remove pan from heat and add chicken to the plate.

Into the pan add the lemon juice, stock and capers. Return to stove and bring to boil, scraping up brown bits from the pan for extra flavor. Check for seasoning. Return all the chicken to the pan and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove chicken to platter. Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter to sauce and whisk vigorously. Pour sauce over chicken and garnish with parsley.

Spreading chicken slime to shakers=rookie move.

Divided We Fall says:

You drowned the chicken in lemon juice and I agree, too watery.

Brynn Stevenson says:

It’s almost…refreshing to know that the older days when she cooked she was so calm and didn’t over exaggerate her Italian accent and roots. She just cooked good food and kept it simple.

Stand Alone says:

Can she be more perfect?

Myles Deep says:

Food network is nowhere near as entertaining as it once was. I'm actually diggin create channel. They have a more realistic atmosphere and better chefs.

Giada is the only skinny chef I trust 😂
I’ve eaten at her restaurant in Vegas and not only own several of her cook books, but have tried several of her recipes (a few are my signature favorite dishes I make often). 😝
