Chicken Piccata Recipe
- 2-4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (1 1/2 pound total)
- 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/3 cup flour
- Salt and pepper
- 4 Tbsp olive oil
- 4 Tbsp butter
- 1/2 dry white wine
- Juice of 3 limes
- ½ tsp Dried Thyme
- 1/4 cup brined capers
- 1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley
Start with whole chicken split breasts. Take the skin off and take them off the bone. Alternatively, use boneless, skinless breast fillets. Cut them down the middle. If they are not 1/4” thick put them in a plastic gallon bag and bash them with the wine bottle till they are.
Dump the flour, Parmesan and ablut ½ tsp salt (or to taste) in a bowl and mix well. Dump that out on a plate and dredge the fillets thorough the mixture.
Put the olive oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet on medium high heat. Cover the bottom of the pan with chicken pieces, do not crowd the pan. Brown well on each side, about 3 minutes per side. If you did not get all the chicken first time take the cooked chicken out and put it on a plate to keep warm. Put the next shift of chicken in and cook in a like manner. When you have all the chicken done, put it aside and keep it warm. Start the sauce.
Add the wine, quarter the lime and squeeze the juice into the pan. Add the capers to the pan. Use a spatula to scrape up the browned bits. Add a pinch or tow of the flour if any is left and reduce the sauce by half. Add in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Plate the chicken and serve with the sauce poured over the chicken. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.

BTW - Thank You to everyone here ar DC. i may have had the skills to prepare this meal on a day's notice, which is all I got, but I would not have had the confidence in myself, not as keen an interest as I now do. Thank you for the encouragement and all things that I have learned here.
