Lemon Chicken Piccata #Lemon #Chicken #Piccata Chicken Recipes Healthy, Chicken Recipes Easy, Chicken Recipes Baked, This could be that romantic dish for that special occasion. For that special someone. I truly believe that a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and if you don’t believe me, I dare you to try it, and cook him a meal like this. All I can tell you is that my man sure enjoyed it. But hey, this dish isn’t only for men, all men out there can make this dish for their special someone.
Although I believe this chicken piccata is an impressive dish, it’s so simple to make. It’s amazing sometimes how you can turn a few simple ingredients into a fabulous and totally delicious dish.

What Is Chicken Piccata

Piccata is a method of preparing food where meat is sliced, coated, sautéed and served in a sauce. The dish is Italian as the name would imply, but it is originally made with veal. But here I chose to make mine with chicken breasts, thinly sliced, or butterflied.

Now there’s a reason behind my madness, there always is, and the reason I chose to make this dish is because I bought these beautiful Meyer Lemons from Costco. I have a lot of them, they came in a great big box and I’m just dying to use them. Of course I have many ideas, mostly desserts, but then I remembered this chicken piccata recipe. Perfect use of my gorgeous Meyer lemons.

How to Make Chicken Piccata

The chicken breasts are skinless and boneless, and thinly sliced lengthwise or butterflied. They are generously seasoned with salt and pepper then dredged through flour. The chicken is then pan fried to a golden perfection on both sides in butter and olive oil.

The chicken is then removed from the skillet, and the lemon juice, white wine and capers are added, at the same time scraping all those delicious brown bits from the bottom of the skillet.
