- 1 tsp salt shopping list
- 1 tsp black pepper shopping list
- 1 tsp cayenne shopping list

- 1/2 T lemon juice shopping list

- 2 tsp. minced garlic shopping list
- 2 T butter shopping list
- 1 T parsley shopping list
How to make it
- Combine the flour with salt, cayenne and black pepper in a shallow bowl.
- One at a time, dredge the scallops in the seasoned flour, shaking to remove any excess.
- Heat 1 T of oil and melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat.
- When the butter foam subsides, add ½ of the chicken scallops and cook until golden brown and just cooked through - about 2 minutes each side.
- Drain on paper towels and set aside in an oven proof baking dish (will serve as your serving dish).
- Add 1 T oil and 2 T of butter to the pan and sauté the second batch of chicken.
- When completed, place in a 250º oven to keep warm, until you make the sauce.
- Add the wine to the juices remaining in the pan and bring to a boil, stir to deglaze the pan, and cook until the wine is reduced by half, 2 to 3 minutes.
- Take about a tablespoon of the remaining seasoned flour and add some water, a little at a time to make a thin paste.
- Add a little at a time to thicken the sauce very slightlyand stirring so there are no lumps .
- Add the reconstituted mushrooms and the juice, chicken stock, lemon juice, capers, and garlic and return to a boil, stirring until the mixture is thickened, about 4 minutes.
- Stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and the parsley.
- Reduce to medium heat and when the butter is melted give it a stir and return all of the chicken scallops to the pan and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes.
- Arrange the chicken scallops in the now hot serving dish and pour the sauce over the chicken.
- Because of the reconstituted mushrooms, the sauce is darker than the normal Picatta sauce.
- Serve immediately.
