Chicken Piccata is a classic Italian dish that is popular in the USA. It is a simple yet flavorful dish that features thinly pounded chicken breasts that are dredged in flour and cooked in a butter and olive oil mixture until they are golden brown.

The chicken is then topped with a tangy and flavorful sauce made from lemon juice, chicken broth, and capers. The sauce is usually thickened with a bit of butter and finished with fresh parsley.


4 boneless(skinless chicken breasts, pounded to) , 1/4-inch thickness, Salt and pepper, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour,

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1/2 cup chicken broth, 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, 1/4 cup capers, 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides. Dredge them in the flour, shaking off any excess.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter and olive oil together. Once the butter has melted and is foamy, add the chicken breasts to the skillet.

Cook the chicken for 3-4 minutes on each side, until they are golden brown and cooked through. Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside.

In the same skillet, add the chicken broth, lemon juice, and capers. Bring the mixture to a boil, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.

Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer the sauce for 5-7 minutes, until it has thickened slightly.

Return the chicken to the skillet and spoon the sauce over the top. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, until the chicken is heated through and the sauce is hot.

Garnish the chicken with chopped parsley and serve immediately. Enjoy your delicious homemade Chicken Piccata!
