Thin chicken cutlets browned with a flavorful, tangy sauce
"Try adding some crushed or chopped can tomatoes. Do not drain the juice add it with this recipe. Also add chopped garlic, the kind you get in a jar from grocery store. Also a little more butter . I have made this from a different recipe and when you add the tomatoes and garlic if you use enough tomatoes it will make a sort of sauce that you can then serve over noodles. I use penne. You can also bread the chicken before you cook it."- ncqt

Top-ranked recipe named "Suzanne's Chicken Picatta"
Directions: Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Slice the breast in half through the middle. Place each slice between two layers of plastic wrap and pound until 1/4 " thick. Season each piece with salt and pepper.
Place the olive oil into a skillet and heat over medium flame. Add the chicken breasts and brown for 2 minutes on each side. Set aside in a warm oven.
To make the sauce, reheat the skillet over medium heat. Add the wine and reduce for 2 minutes, stirring constantly to scrape brown bits off bottom. Stir in capers and lemon juice. Remove from heat and add the butter, stirring until melted. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour sauce over chicken and serve
Each (1/2 breast) serving contains an estimated:

This recipe lends itself to tableside preparation if you like to show off. Sometimes I use a bit of brandy in addition to the wine just to create some flames while deglazing thre pan.

singleguy55 5 months agoI just made this. I did not have everything I needed but I gave it a shot anyway. What I came up with was very tasty, so I'm sure the original is even better.
bambisworld 7 months agoIt was good and fast to make. I thought, maybe a little cream and a little cornstarch, but it was actually really good without the added calories. Instead of real butter i used organic, soy free, lactose free earth balance and it was yummy served with angel hair pasta tossed with grated parmesan and roasted Asparagus.

Cgeorghiou 1 year agoTasty!! Couple notes on making this even more scrumptious... 1. Use the butter to sauté fresh mushrooms on the side. Set the mushrooms aside and then add the capers/lemon juice to the residual butter. 2. After sautéing for a while add a half cup of cream. It will make the sauce go even farther. Add a teaspoon of cornstarch and stir.
MrsDedrick 2 years agoIt was good! Only thing it needs is to add real lemons (sliced) to bring more flavor!
ahkahn 2 years agoOk, absolutely awesome! I added a light breading to the chicken. Everything came out perfect!

ejm 3 years agoThis was great, it was fast, easy and good. I've tried to make it before and think i was missing the butter at the end - whatever it was I was not doing has now been fixed! Thanks
kimboorleelee 3 years agoI'm always looking for quick, easy, healthy meals. This fit the bill & was delicious. I'd like to try it with a little more EVOO & a little less butter, though it probably won't be quite as tasty. Also thinking about adding garlic. By the way, I was out of white wine, so I used red, and it was still great.

stevemur 8 years agoTo Dana's question -- Chicken broth (with the lemon juice) could probably be used in place of the wine if you're looking for a non-alcoholic alternative.
promfh 8 years agoI chose to serve this with green beans
Dana 9 years agoWhat else could be used in place of the wine?
stevemur 9 years agoGood flavor. Best with just a touch of lemon juice at the end. Consider serving with angel hair pasta.
