Chicken Picatta


I was not going to pass up trying this weeks recipe for Barefoot Bloggers' blog.. Lindsey of Noodle Nights and Muffin Mornings chose Chicken Piccata. It was a lightly breaded chicken breast served with a very lemony sauce. We loved it except for the amount of lemon. It was a little too much for our family. I wasn't sure how thin to pound the chicken. I used plastic wrap since I didn't have any parchment paper on hand. I served this with a nice green salad and couscous with tomatoes, garbanzo beans, roasted garlic and more parsley. I wanted to add some capers but my husband does not like them. Nest time I will only use 1 lemon and add a little extra wine. I love Ina's recipes and always enjoy trying something new. Thanks Lindsey for choosing this recipe.

I agree about the lemon... it can be a little overpowering. Glad you enjoyed it!

I'm glad you enjoyed this! We loved it. It was so easy to make, perfect for a weeknight dinner (and lunch at work the next day!)

I like to pound chicken in ziploc bags, they are just a little more substantial and keep the spray down. Tell Mark to learn to love capers, they rock!

Yes, my sauce was too lemony also. I'm the only one who eats the capers at my house, but I put them in anyway!

I had no parchment either - here we substitute something called baking paper = not sure if it is available to you or not.... I liked the lemon although I suspect they might not be as sour as yours...
