Good Life Guy’s Chicken Piccata

 

Ingredients:
4 Tbsp butter divided
2-3 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVO)
8 boneless skinless chicken breast strips
1 large shallot finely diced
¼ cup chopped flat leaf parsley
1 Small (3.5oz) jar of capers
6 Large mushrooms sliced
¾ cup chicken stock or broth
1 cup of white wine (I like an off-dry Riesling)
1 tsp lemon zest
2 Tbsp lemon juice
½ cup all purpose flour
1 egg whisked
Salt & Pepper to taste
1-2 Tbsp sugar as desired
Gold Medal Wondra flour Sauce thickener
Parchment paper

Preparation:

  • Preheat oven to 300F.
  • Place breast strips (2 or 3 at a time) between parchment paper and gently pound to 1/4” thickness.
  • Dredge the flattened breast strips in the egg, then the flour. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat, add 2 Tbsp of butter and the EVO until the butter just starts to brown. Fry the breast strips about 3-5 minutes per side until light brown, season with salt and pepper after turning. Remove to an oven safe serving dish and keep warm in a pre-heated 300F over.
  • Add the remaining 2 Tbsp of butter, the shallots & mushrooms to the pan and stir for 1-2 minutes. Deglaze the pan with the white wine, then add the chicken stock, parsley, capers & caper juice. Reduce by about ½. Add the 2 Tbsp of fresh lemon juice, stir and taste. Adjust the acidity with sugar, then add about 1 Tbsp of Wondra while stirring the sauce. Reduce heat to low.

Serving:
Either add the sauce to the serving platter or place the chicken on individual plates and add the sauce.
Serve with mashed potatoes and vegetable of choice.
