Healthier Chicken Piccata

Adapted from: Good Housekeeping

Chicken Piccata


3 tablespoons olive oil

2 large eggs

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 pound thin-sliced chicken cutlets

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 teaspoon finely chopped garlic

1 cup chicken broth

1/4 cup capers, rinsed and drained

2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


In 12-inch heat skillet, heat olive oil on medium.

Next, in shallow bowl, beat eggs. Sprinkle flour onto large plate. Dredge chicken in eggs, then in flour.

Then, add 1 tablespoon butter to olive oil in skillet. When butter melts, add chicken in batches if necessary. Cook chicken 6 to 8 minutes or until browned, turned over at least once. Transfer to platter and set aside.

To drippings in skillet, add garlic and remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Cook garlic 30 seconds, stirring.

Stir in broth and capers. Simmer on medium-low 3 to 5 minutes or until reduced by half. Stir in vinegar and lemon juice.

Finally, return chicken to skillet and spoon sauce over it. Cover and cook 8 to 10 minutes on medium or until chicken is cooked through. Sprinkle with parsley to serve.


I’ve made this a few times now and it is quickly becoming a new favorite!
