Chicken Piccata is so easy to make having just a few basic ingredients, yet it has a restaurant quality appearance and flavor that will impress family members and dinner guests alike. It also happens to have two of my favorite ingredients: lemons and capers. Together they are a mouth-watering combo not to be reckoned with. Don’t limit yourself to using the piccata sauce just over chicken– it tastes amazing with fish as well (try it over salmon…yum).
In a shallow bowl, sift together the flour, salt, pepper and paprika and set aside. In a large frying pan, add 2 tablespoons of butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. As the butter is melting, dredge the cutlets, one at a time, in the flour mixture. Shake off excess flour and place the chicken in the frying pan. Cook until done. Depending on how many pieces of chicken you are making, you may have to do this in batches.
