1 tbsp Olive Oil
2-3 tbsp Butter
3 pieces Chicken Breasts

⅓ c. All-purpose Flour
1 c. Parmesan packed, grated fine
½ tsp Salt
½ tsp Black Pepper
Juice of one Lemon
1 tbsp Butter
½ c. White Wine
How to make Lemon Chicken Piccata
Step 1: Into two lengthwise slices, cut each chicken breast. Then, place them in a cling wrap and pound them using a meat mallet.
Step 2: Mix the all-purpose flour, salt, black pepper, and Italian seasoning or oregano in the first shallow plate or container. In the second plate, break and whisk the eggs. In the last plate or container, place the grated Parmesan cheese.
Step 3: In the flour, dredge the chicken cutlet. Dip in the egg and coat with the Parmesan. Into a dish, place the coated chicken pieces, making sure they are not touching each other.
Step 4: Heat the olive oil with 1 tbsp butter in a skillet. Once hot, add the chicken slices (in batches) and sear until all sides are golden. As needed, add the rest of the butter. Keep the chicken aside when done.
Step 5: On a slow heat setting, keep the pan and add 1 tbsp butter. Once melted, add the white wine and stir using a spatula on medium heat. Stir in the lemon juice and decrease the heat. Take the pan off the heat.
Step 6: Into the pan with the sauce, return the chicken, and garnish with some fresh parsley and slices of freshly cut lemon.
Step 7: Serve immediately. Enjoy!
If you do not have Italian seasoning, use oregano instead.
For this recipe, use your preferred white wine.
If desired, season the sauce with capers. Add the capers before pouring in the wine.
