How to make it

  • 1.If fresh breasts, place each breast between wax paper to pound chicken flat. Then cut in half, then cut each length wise. If you are using the frozen chicken tenders, defrosted of course, just use from the bag. Thawed frozen taste just fine.
  • 2. TO 1 CUP FLOUR ADD LEMON PEPPER, PAPRIKA, SALT.
  • 3. BEAT 1 EGG AND ¼ CUP MILK. DIP EACH BREAST IN MIX , THEN DIP EACH BREAST IN FLOUR MIX AND LAY IN A SINGLE LAYER ON WAX PAPER.
  • 4. IN A LARGE NON-STICK FRYING PAN HEAT 3 TABLESPOONS BUTTER AND 3 TABLESPOONS OLIVE OIL (OIL HELPS PREVENT BUTTER BURNING). BROWN AND COOK ALL CHICKEN BREASTS. WHEN DONE PLACE BREASTS ON A PLATE.
  • 5. COOK ON “HI” 1 CUP WHITE WINE. BRING TO A BOIL THEN ADD JUICE OF 2 LEMONS, 3 TABLESPOONS CAPERS AND JUICE, AND 3 TABLESPOONS BUTTER. BOIL A LITTLE, THEN RETURN CHICKEN TO PAN. REDUCE HEAT TO MEDIUM AND COOK FOR ABOUT 5 MINUTES.
  • 6. SERVE TO PLATES, SPOONING ON CAPERS AND LEFT OVER SAUCE. THIS IS A KILLER DISH.

    I still laugh when I see the pic that goes with this recipe! I love chicken picata, but it still doesn't look like two cats when I make it. I must be doing something wrong.

    You know I've made Chicken Picata before and it's never resembled two cats. I must be doing something wrong... Anyway, great recipe. I love the flavors in this dish.

    Wow, I am a huge Chicken Picata fan, and this was great! Kudos to you and your wife. My eldest even ate it without Tobasco, which, let me tell you, is a rare occasion in my house!!

    I made this last night- what a fabulous dish. I have never made it before, so I wanted to try it. I plan to use the basics for prepping it with salmon fillets soon as well. Thanks for the recipe!
