Chicken Piccata
Contributed by: Carin Gregory
  • 4 skinless chicken breast halves
  • 3 TBS butter, at room temperature
  • 11â�„2 TBS all-purpose flour
  • Buttermilk
  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 1â�„3 cup dry white wine
  • 1â�„4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1â�„4 cup canned low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1â�„4 cup drained capers
  • 1â�„4 cup chopped fresh parsley
Place chicken between two large sheets of plastic. Using a meat mallet, lightly pound chicken to 1�4-inch thickness. Place in bowl and pour buttermilk to cover; refrigerate for three hours.
Dip chicken in flour to coat; shake off excess.
Heat olive oil in a heavy, large skillet. Add chicken and salt and pepper it. Cook until golden and cooked through, about three minutes per side. Transfer chicken to platter; tent with foil to keep warm.
Mix 1 TBS butter and 11�2 TBS flour in a small bowl until smooth. Bring wine, lemon juice and broth to a boil in the skillet over medium high heat. Whisk in butter-flour mixture and boil until sauce thickens slightly, about two minutes. Stir in capers, parsley and remaining 2 TBS butter. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour sauce over chicken and serve. Serves 4.
