Description

Italian fried chicken cutlets braised in butter, capers, white wine, and lemon sauce. 


Ingredients

Scale

4 chicken breasts pounded to about 1/4 inch thick or cut thinly

1/2 cup all-purpose flour (omit for keto-friendly version)

1/2 cup parmesan cheese grated

1 lemon  zested

1 tablespoon olive oil more as needed

3 tablespoons butter more as needed

salt and pepper to taste

SAUCE:

1/4 cup butter

1 1/2 tablespoons flour

1 cup chicken broth

1/2 cup Pinot Grigio or other crisp white wine

1/2 lemon juiced (about 1 1/2 tablespoons)

3 tablespoon capers drained and rinsed

2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped

Lemon wedges


Instructions

1. Combine the flour, parmesan cheese, lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture

2. Heat olive oil in a heavy bottom skillet over medium-high heat. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in hot oil. Add two or three breaded chicken cutlets to the hot pan and about 4-5 minutes per side or until just cooked through. Cook chicken in batches adding more butter and oil as necessary. Remove cooked chicken to a pan and keep warm.

3. After the chicken is cooked, melt 1/4 cup butter in the same pan. Add flour and make a roux. Whisk until smooth. Cook 1-2 minutes.

4. Gradually stir in chicken broth whisking after each addition until smooth.

5. Add lemon juice, white wine, and capers. Simmer 3 minutes, whisking occasionally.

6. Add the cooked chicken back to the pan and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Stire in parsley and serve with your favorite pasta.

 


Notes

For best results, be sure to use a good drinking wine when making the recipe. Remember if you wouldn't drink it, don't cook with it. I used a delicious Pinot Grigio which I also served with the meal.

When making chicken piccata serve with your favorite pasta. For low carb version, substitute Zucchini Noodles or Cauliflower Rice.
