Chicken Piccata

Since starting this blog, I have tried many, many new recipes.  Some of them have made it to these pages after having been tried several times and passing the tests of a husband, six-year-old, and four-year-old (and me, of course).  But yet, there are still some recipes that I reach for that I grew up with, ones that take me back to my mom's kitchen.  This is one of those recipes.  In fact, this was served at my wedding shower.  Simple and flavorful, you can't go wrong with chicken piccata.

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/8 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • sprinkle of salt and pepper
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 2 bullion cubes
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  1. Marinate chicken, sliced or pounded thin, for 45 minutes in egg/lemon juice (1 tsp) mixture.
  2. Combine flour and seasonings.  Dip chicken in flour mixture.
  3. Melt 1/2 stick of butter and fry chicken until golden brown.
  4. Add bullion cubes to 1 cup of boiling water and 2 tsp lemon juice.  Add to skillet with chicken; simmer 20 minutes.

Difficulty: medium-easy 
Time: 45 minutes to marinate; 15 minutes hands-on followed by 20 minutes to simmer
