This is a restaurant-quality dish that may easily be made at home ---I have omitted capers from the ingredient list I also like to add them in --- you will need a large skillet for this

- 2 large garlic cloves, minced (can use more)
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1⁄2 cup dry white wine
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 -2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (optional)
- In a shallow dish combine the flour with salt, paprika, garlic powder and cayenne.
- In another shallow dish whisk the egg with 2 tablespoons milk.
- Dip the chicken breasts firstly in egg (allowing excess to drip off) then coat into the flour mixture, pressing down with hands to ahear the coating firmly to the chicken.
- Place all the coated chicken breasts onto a plate/s.

Wish I could give this 10 stars!!! This is a wonderful Piccata. (I did add capers to this.) Easy to make and definitely "company-worthy". You did it again, KittenCal, another wonderful dish. Thanks for sharing.
Had no idea what Piccata was, but turned out a very pleasant dish. Easy to make too... Thanks!!
