Chicken Piccata

Ready in 35 minutes

If you don't like a strong lemon flavor then cut the lemon juice to 1/3 cup

"Incredible! Second time making this recipe tonight. First time the 1/4 cup lemon juice was way too much, so I used 1/3 and it was absolutely perfect. The only thing I didn't follow is cooking the garlic first and reserving it. Instead, I added it at the same time as the lemon juice and capers. This will definitely be a weekly meal in my house. "

Servings  

Preparation

1. Whisk together flour, black pepper, and paprika in a shallow dish. Dredge the chicken pieces in the flour mixture, coating evenly; set aside. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; stir and cook the garlic until light brown, about 1 minute. Remove the garlic from the skillet and set aside.

2. Place 2 tablespoons of butter into the skillet with the olive oil. Cook the chicken pieces in the oil and butter over medium-high heat until brown, about 5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.

3. Pour the wine into the hot skillet and bring to a boil over high heat, scraping the browned pieces from the bottom and sides of the pan. Boil the wine until it is reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the chicken broth, reserved garlic, lemon juice, and capers. Cook for 5 minutes over medium-high heat. Stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and parsley. Return the chicken pieces to the skillet and continue cooking over medium heat until the sauce thickens, about 15 minutes.

4. Remove the chicken pieces to a serve over angel hair pasta and drizzle with a few tablespoons of the sauce and capers.

Serve over angel hair pasta

This was so easy to make and very tasty. I did add less lemon juice like other reviewers suggested and it came out perfect. I will definitely be making this again!
