Chicken Piccata

I have seen this recipe for years and finally decided to give it a try. I knew my husband would love it. The capers were my concern, for me, I'm not a big salt lover and they are very salty. My husband on the other hand is a salt addict.

He LOVED it. He kept saying things like "OMG I love capers"  "what are these, they are great" "Okay these capers are seriously my favorite now". His reaction to foods can be very entertaining.

The recipe is very easy. I was done from start to finish in about twenty five minutes. As you can see I served it with sliced steamed potatoes and a very large salad.

Chicken Piccata

4 boneless skinless chicken tenders
2-3 TBSP Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup flour
fresh cracked pepper
1/3 cup capers
2 TBSP lemon juice
1/4 cup lemon infused cooking white wine
2 tsp butter
1 TBSP olive oil

Heat butter and oil in skillet. Coat chicken with a mix of Parmesan cheese and flour, season with fresh cracked pepper. Once the chicken is cooked through with a little pink showing, remove and set aside. Add the capers, lemon juice and wine to the pan, cook for 5 minutes, replace the chicken to the pan. Turn off the heat and cover. Allow to sit while you prepare your salad, or wait 20 minutes. ENJOY
