Chicken Piccata recipe - So Good!

When your chef skills are on fleek!!! 👊🏼 Sometimes I create something that's so good I HAVE to share it! Like last night!! I made chicken piccata which is crusted chicken in a lemon sauce. It was honestly pretty easy and only took about 30 minutes, but did leave a wicked mess in my kitchen. #ooops #worthit

Ingredients:

  • Chicken tenderloins/breasts
  • Two eggs
  • Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 2 tbs. grass fed butter
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • a few tbs. lemon juice
  • additional seasoning and capers, if desired
  • brown rice, if desired

Directions:

  1. Start with some chicken tenderloins on filets of chicken breast, trimmed. You can pound the chicken flat but I was too impatient to do this and the chicken I used worked just fine :)
  2. Set up a station where you can dunk the chicken in two mixtures, in two different bowls. One bowl has two eggs and a little water whisked together. The second bowl has breadcrumbs (Panko is my FAV) with about 1/4 cup grated parm and a pinch of cayenne pepper. First dunk in the egg mixture, then the breadcrumb mixture. Use your hands to pat the mixture on the chicken. Give it some love <3
  3. Add the chicken to a pan that has been heating up with a little extra virgin olive oil in it and cook for 7-10 minutes per side, depending on your pan. Once both sides are crispy, remove the chicken (even if it's not cooked all the way through) and add 2 TBS of grass fed butter to the pan. Once that's melted, add a cup of chicken stock to the pan and use your spoon or spatula to scrape the little bits off the bottom of the pan. That is your flavor! Add a few TBS of lemon juice and let the sauce boil. Once it's boiling, reduce the heat and add your chicken breasts back in the pan. Cook a few more minutes until the chicken is cooked through. This is a good time to check for seasoning, add some parsley, etc. REAL chicken picatta calls for capers but I LITERALLY cannot find these EVER in my grocery store so I went without them

I served this over brown rice and even my kids loved it!!! Feel free to adjust measurements to your tastes. Enjoy!!
