Chicken Piccata

I just realized that I haven’t shared one of my favorite dinner recipes with you. Bad Lyuba, bad! Hope you can forgive me!
This is such an easy and quick recipe, it should be a part of every cook’s repertoire. I can guarantee that you will love it. 
I know, I know, not everyone is a fan of capers or lemons. I still urge you to try it because my hubby is not a big fan of capers and he is iffy about lemon flavor in his dinner. He changed his mind pretty quickly after the first bite! The plate was licked clean!

2 boneless, skinless chicken bones
About 1/2 cup flour for dusting
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2 tbs olive or grapeseed oil
1/2 cup dry white wine
2 large cloves of garlic
2/3 cup chicken stock
2 tbs fresh lemon juice
1 tbs drained capers
1  medium lemon, sliced
Salt, pepper

1. Cut the chicken breast in half, lengthwise. Combine Parmesan cheese and flour and mix well. Salt and pepper the cutlets and lightly coat with flour/Parmesan mixture.

2. Heat up the oil in a large pan. Saute the chicken cutlets until golden on each side.

3. Take out the chicken and set aside.

4. Deglaze the pan with wine (use your spatula to scrape the bottom of the pan, it will add more flavor). Add the thinly sliced garlic and cook until fragrant.

5. Add the chicken stock, lemon juice, capers and some salt and pepper.

6. Return cutlets to the pan and add sliced lemons.

7. Cook the chicken in sauce for about 5 minutes, make sure the chicken if fully cooked. Serve with your favorite side.

    My favorite meal is anything that includes chicken.  I haven’t made chicken Piccata in such a long time. I like your recipe because it sounds so  much easier than I have made before.  Like that you added the Parmesan cheese in the beginning.  It sounds really good so I’ll be giving it a try.   Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration over at Sunday’s Best!
