Also known as chicken piccata, this is a fast and delicious dish that's nice enough for entertaining. The chicken cooks relatively quickly, as you pound it to an even thickness before pan frying. Serve this alongside roasted potatoes and green veg, or over pasta.
I'm giving this recipe only four stars as written, after working with the recipe I made the following changes and believe it's a five star: don't batter the chicken, just flour (added salt, pepper, and paprika to flour), use real butter and olive oil to saute chicken, double or triple the sauce using good white wine, and add several tablespoons of capers to finish. I served with parmesean/parsley mashed potatos on a large platter with lemon slices, beautiful presentation. This dish is definitely for lemon lovers, and the flavors are mild and mellow, so you can finish the meal off with a big bang of a dessert! - 20 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
We really love this recipe. I always triple the white wine and lemon juice for the sauce in the end, but let it cook down until it is not so runny. I also put two cloves of crushed garlic in with the oil and butter, and let that saute before adding the chicken. And definetly use olive oil! Awesome taste. - 14 Sep 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
OMG This was sooooo good - finally i was able to fry and have the breading stay on - i pounded the chicken real thin, dipped it in the flour, than the egg, than the bread crumbs and fried it in butter and olive oil, and the crust stayed on !!!!! i was so excited!!!! i made the sauce with chicken broth because i didnt have wine and added capers too. Served it over angel hair pasta, and had fresh broccoli and green salad on the side. Hubby and his friend inhaled it, and the kids loved it too!!! definitely a keeper, will be making this again -- thanks so much for posting this recipe - - 28 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
