Every home cook needs to know how to make a great Chicken Piccata. It's a dish that can come together in just twenty minutes once you get the hang of it, yet is elegant and delicious. The secret to a great Chicken Piccata is to pound the chicken thin, coat it in flour, and get the pan hot with oil before putting the chicken on. We love it with angel-hair chicken and a crisp Pinot Gris.
Tip: Marinate skinless chicken pieces generally for up to four to six hours. Skin-on pieces can go for up to six hours or even overnight. Marinades have trouble penetrating the fat in the skin, thus allowing more time.
