Chicken piccata is super easy meal that you can fix within half an hour and you should be able to have your meals ready . People who loves lemons should def.try this dish , it is lemony , tangy , but you can always tone it down , by adding a little sugar . I also used chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts , but i am sure it’ll be healthier if you use chicken breasts and omit the butter .
You need :
2 lbs of boneless chicken , use meat tenderizer , pound it flat
salt and pepper
flour to dredge the chicken
2/3 cup of fresh lemon juice
1 cup of chicken broth
1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper , then dredge the chicken on the flour . Add into the skillet ( with heated olive oil and 1 tbsp. of butter ) . .When the skillet sizzles , add the chicken , cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until it turns brown . Remove from the skillet , set aside .
2. Add lemon juice and chicken broth , bring to boil , scrapping up the brown bits , then return the chicken into the skillet with lemon juice and broth. Simmer for 8 minutes . Place the chicken on the plate and then pour little bit of the sauce . Serve with mashed potato or pasta .
