Chicken Piccata

Chicken PiccataChicken Piccata is a delicious and elegant dish. It is simple enough to make for just yourself, yet impressive enough to serve at a dinner party. Chicken Piccata is a light meal with a mouthwatering sauce comprised of lemon juice, chicken broth, capers, parsley and butter. I simply season my chicken and dredge it in flour, pan fry and then set aside. After making the sauce, I return my chicken to the pan to simmer. My husband, who is not the biggest fan of Mediterranean style dishes, couldn’t resit having a second helping of this flavorful chicken.
