Easy Chicken Piccata This is my son’s favorite dish. He is a very persnickety eater. Serve this chicken recipe over white rice.

prep: 10 mins cook: 15 mins total: 25 mins Servings: 4 Yield: 4 servings


  • 2 large skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ stick butter
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 3 lemons, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons drained capers
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


    Step 1

    Slice chicken breasts horizontally to yield 4 pieces. Place breasts between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound to 1/4-inch thin. Place flour on a plate and dredge each breast on both sides in flour.

    Step 2

    Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Put chicken into the skillet and season tops with salt and pepper. Turn when nicely browned, about 4 minutes, and season again. Cook second side until browned, about 4 minutes. Transfer breasts to a plate, reserving skillet drippings.

    Step 3

    Add wine and lemon juice to the skillet, stirring to scrape up any browned bits. Simmer to reduce and thicken sauce, about 5 minutes more. Add capers and pour sauce over chicken breasts on the plate. Sprinkle with parsley.
