Luscious Lemon Chicken Piccata
Directions
8 STEPS
1
Slice the chicken breasts in half horizontally, so you have 4 thin chicken breasts, and season with salt and pepper.
2
Beat the egg in a shallow bowl with 1 tablespoon of water. In another shallow bowl, add the flour and breadcrumbs, mixing them together.
3
Coat the chicken on both sides first in the flour-breadcrumb mixture, and then in the egg wash.
4
Heat 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and add the minced garlic and chopped shallots. Cook until fragrant.
5
Place the chicken in the skillet and cook for about 3 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Transfer the cooked chicken to a plate.
6
Reduce heat to medium-low. Add chicken broth, heavy cream, juice from both lemons, and capers to the skillet.
7
Season the sauce with salt and pepper if needed, and let it cook and bubble for about 3-5 minutes.
8
Serve the chicken over hot cooked pasta or mashed potatoes, and spoon the lemon-caper cream sauce on top.
