The Technique

Chicken Piccata

Chicken Piccata is traditionally prepared by sautéing thinly sliced chicken then finishing with a reduction sauce consisting most commonly of white wine, lemon juice & capers. The chicken is dredged in a bit of flour then browned however I’ve added some cornmeal for extra crunch. It’s an incredibly fast dinner that is cooked on the stovetop. Learn how to make a lovely meal that may be served to family any night of the week or reserve it when entertaining friends is in order.

makes 4 servings

2 {12-ounce} boneless, skinless chicken breasts {about 1 1/2 lbs}
1/4 cup all purpose flour
2 Tbsp plain yellow cornmeal
3/4 tsp kosher salt

Slice each chicken breast in half horizontally to create 4 {1/2-inch} thick pieces. Place the chicken between plastic wrap & pound to a 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet. Combine the flour, the cornmeal, the salt & the pepper on a plate.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Heat the oil over Medium-High in a 13-inch skillet.

Bring to a boil & cook until reduced by 2/3, stirring occasionally, about 4 minutes. Turn off the heat. Add the butter & the capers. Stir the mixture until emulsified & thickened. Season with freshly ground pepper. Divide the chicken between 4 shallow bowls or plates. Spoon the caper mixture over the chicken & top with parsley.
