Creamy Lemon Chicken Piccata
Creamy Lemon Chicken Piccata is a classic Italian dish that is both tangy and savory, and makes for a perfect dinner option. It’s a combination of tender chicken breasts coated in a crispy, golden-brown crust, smothered in a luscious lemon cream sauce, and served alongside pasta or steamed vegetables.
Here’s a step-by-step recipe for making this delicious Creamy Lemon Chicken Piccata:
What you’ll need :
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup capers, drained
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
Begin by preparing the chicken breasts. Use a meat mallet to pound the chicken breasts to an even thickness of about 1/2 inch. This helps to ensure that the chicken cooks evenly.
In a shallow dish, combine the flour, salt, and black pepper. Dredge the chicken breasts in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.
Heat 2 tablespoons of butter and 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts to the skillet and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, until they are golden brown and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside on a plate.
In the same skillet, add the chicken broth, lemon juice, and capers. Use a wooden spoon to scrape any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Bring the mixture to a boil and let it simmer for about 2-3 minutes until the sauce has slightly thickened.
Reduce the heat to low and stir in the heavy cream and remaining 2 tablespoons of butter until the sauce is smooth and creamy.
Return the chicken breasts to the skillet and spoon the lemon cream sauce over them. Let the chicken simmer in the sauce for a few minutes until it is heated through and the sauce has thickened to your desired consistency.
Garnish the chicken with chopped parsley and serve it with pasta or steamed vegetables on the side.
Creamy Lemon Chicken Piccata is a simple yet elegant dish that is perfect for a special occasion or a weeknight dinner. With its tangy lemon sauce and crispy chicken, this recipe is sure to become a family favorite. Give it a try and enjoy!
