Classic chicken piccata is easy to make for hosting a dinner party or a family meal at home.
Chicken piccata sounds like a super fancy and fussy recipe to make for a weeknight dinner. But it’s not! You simply pan fry a couple of flattened chicken breasts and then make a quick sauce. It couldn’t be easier to make a delicious dinner.
Chicken Piccata with Lemons and Capers
Chicken piccata is made by frying up flattened chicken breasts in your favorite oil. You can use olive oil or coconut oil.
Hojiblanca extra virgin olive oil has a lighter flavor and body compared to regular extra virgin olive oil. Sometimes the flavor of olive oil can overwhelm other flavors in a dish and the Hojiblanca definitely does not overwhelm in the chicken piccata.
One of the best parts of this dish is the capers. The recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of capers, but feel free to put in 1/4 cup or more of capers. You can use bottled or fresh lemon juice for the sauce. Serve the chicken over pasta or rice and enjoy the delicious sauce!
