Chicken Piccata

Chicken Piccata
Ingredients: 
  • ¼ C all-purpose flour
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lb “thinly sliced” boneless, skinless chicken breasts or full sized breasts pounded to even thickness
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 C reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons capers
Directions: 
  • On a plate, combine the flour and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Lightly dredge the chicken in the flour.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the oil. Sauté the garlic for 1 minute. Add the chicken and cook for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until golden and just cooked through. Remove the chicken and set aside.
  • Add the broth and lemon juice to the skillet and bring to a boil. Boil until the sauce has reduced by about half, scraping up any browned bits clinging to the pan.
  • Return the chicken to the skillet, add the capers, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until heated through. Season with salt and pepper.
