    kiwidutch's Note:

    We all loved this dish, even the kids! Serve with crusty french bread, basmati rice and a spring salad. Please note: this is an adopted recipe and I have just tried it myself. Findings: I made it with more chicken stock, double the garlic & more sliced lemon and no lemon juice to suit DH's preference for not too much lemon and becuase we had guests and I had 6 chicken breasts. DH approved of it made this way as the lemon flavour came though well, without being overly acidic. Guests wanted the recipe, so it's a keeper. ZWT REGION: Italy.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 200 degrees; place a heat-proof platter (or casserole dish) in oven.
    2. 2
      Pour flour onto a plate. Coat both sides of chicken breast halves in flour; shake off excess.
    3. 3
      Heat 2 tablespoons oil in 12-inch heavy-bottom skillet over medium-high heat. Saute half the chicken (without moving) until lightly browned on first side, about 4 to 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Turn and cook until second side is lightly browned and chicken is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer chicken to heated platter or casserole dish and return to oven.
    5. 5
      Repeat with remaining oil and chicken.
    6. 6
      In same skillet, saute garlic about 10 seconds; add broth and lemon slices. Increase heat to high. Scrape skillet bottom with wooden spoon to loosen any browned bits. Simmer about 10 minutes to reduce liquid.
    7. 7
      Add lemon juice and capers and simmer about 5 more minutes.
    8. 8
      Remove pan from heat and stir in butter until it melts and sauce thickens. Blend in parsley.
    9. 9
      Spoon sauce over chicken and serve.

      This was very easy!!! Chicken Piccata is a family favorite and this was made in no time at all. I added a little white wine with the chicken broth. Thanks Kiwi!
