Fantastic Chicken Piccata

“I used Grand Chef Potter's Chicken Piccata as a base for this recipe, and am posting with the tweaks I always make when preparing it. It is so yummy, that I eat the sauce over my risotto as well...and have trouble stopping! I usually serve this with Creamy Oven-Baked Risotto and a salad or garlic green beans.”

Directions

  1. Place chicken between 2 large sheets of plastic wrap. Using meat pounder or rolling pin, lightly pound chicken to 1/4-inch thickness.
  2. Dust chicken with salt and pepper.
  3. Melt 1 tablespoon butter and mix with 1.5 tablespoons flour in small bowl until smooth, set aside.
  4. Place flour on a plate and dip chicken into to coat; shake off excess.
  5. Heat 2 tablespoon oil in each of 2 heavy large skillets. Add 2 chicken breasts to each skillet and cook until golden and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.
  6. Transfer chicken to platter; tent with foil to keep warm.
  7. Bring wine, lemon juice and broth to boil in 1 skillet over medium-high heat.
  8. Whisk in butter-flour mixture and boil until sauce thickens slightly, about 2 minutes.
  9. Stir in capers, parsley and remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Season sauce to taste with salt and pepper. Pour sauce over chicken and serve with either buttered noodles or risotto.
