Chicken Piccata with Capers
Lemony, salty and savory, this Chicken Piccata recipe is delicious and easy."You won't go wrong with this wonderful version of Chicken Piccata. It was very simple to make, the chicken was tender and juicy, the sauce was a wonderful accent to the chicken and all the flavors were perfectly balanced. (Amazing how so few ingredients create so much flavor!) The dish makes a great, quick weeknight dinner but is elegant enough to serve for guests. We served the Piccata over Spaghetti Aglio e Olio (spaghetti with garlic and oil)." - sgrishka

Chicken Piccata with Capers Preparation
Halve the chicken pieces horizontally with a sharp knife and flatten them slightly between sheets of plastic wrap. Dredge lightly in flour, shake off the excess and put on rack to dry.
In a large heavy skillet heat 1 tablespoon of the butter and the oil over moderately high heat until the foam subsides and in the fat saute the chicken pieces, seasoned with salt and pepper, for 1 minute on each side, or until they are cooked through. Transfer a 350 degree oven to keep warm, covered loosely.
Pour off the fat in the skillet, to the skillet add the remaining 1 tablespoon butter, the wine, the chicken stock and the lemon juice, and bring the mixture to a boil. Stir in the capers, the parsley, and salt and pepper to taste and spoon the sauce over the chicken.
