Chicken Piccata - Giada De Laurentiis

Chicken Piccata - Giada De Laurentiis created by DianaEatingRichly

This is a recipe from her weeknight dinner show. I love piccata and this is wonderful served over pasta and I served with salad and garlic bread. NOTE: Her recipe states to add 1/3 cup lemon juice, but alot of people that reviewed her recipe said it was too tart and would add less, so I suggest starting with 1/4 cup lemon juice.

ingredients

directions

  • Season chicken with salt and pepper. Dredge chicken in flour and shake off excess.
  • In a large skillet over medium high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter with 3 tablespoons olive oil. When butter and oil start to sizzle, add 2 pieces of chicken and cook for 3 minutes. When chicken is browned, flip and cook other side for 3 minutes. Remove and transfer to plate. Melt 2 more tablespoons butter and add another 2 tablespoons olive oil. When butter and oil start to sizzle, add the other 2 pieces of chicken and brown both sides in same manner. Remove pan from heat and add chicken to the plate.
  • Into the pan add the lemon juice, stock and capers. Return to stove and bring to boil, scraping up brown bits from the pan for extra flavor. Check for seasoning. Return all the chicken to the pan and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove chicken to platter. Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter to sauce and whisk vigorously. Pour sauce over chicken and garnish with parsley.

    We have been making this recipe for years. It is a family favorite. I used the recipe as it is written and it is perfect. You can easily double or triple the recipe as needed. It is easy to do and fairly quick for a dinner, if you prep ahead.

    How important are the capers (Yuk!)?

    What is the reasoning behind cooking the chicken pieces 2 at a time, when 4 would comfortably fit in the average pan without crowding?
