Chicken Piccata

Chicken Piccata

Serves 4 

Chicken Piccata is a delicious chicken dinner that comes together in minutes.  My family loves it. This dish looks and tastes so fancy but it is so simple.  So, it’s great for a date night in or even a Sunday Dinner.  Nothing says I love you more than a home cooked meal.  As my grandpa always said, “Food is Love,” and I firmly believe this.


8 Chicken Cutlets (about 2lbs.), Pounded Thin

1 ½  tsp Salt

1 tsp Pepper

1 Cup Flour

12 tbsp. Butter

⅔ Cup Fresh Lemon Juice

1 Cup Chicken Broth

½ Cup Capers, Drained and Rinsed

2 tbsp. Fresh Parsley, chopped


In a shallow bowl combine flour with 1 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of pepper.  Dread each chicken cutlet in the flour on both sides and shake off any excess.

In a large skillet, heat 8 tbsp. of butter.  Let it melt and add the chicken. Cook the chicken for about 4 minutes on each side.  Remove the chicken from the pan. 

To the pan add 4 tbsp of butter.  Let it melt and add ½ cup of the broth, lemon juice and 1/2 tsp. of salt.  Let that come to a simmer and reduce for about 5 minutes on low to medium heat.  Then add in the capers.  

Put the chicken back in the pan to finish cooking. Add ½ cup of broth, combining the sauce well. Cook for about 4 more minutes, spooning the sauce over each piece of chicken. Garnish with fresh parsley.  Serve Immediately.
