Chicken Piccata is such a great quick dish that looks and tastes like you’ve spent the day working on it when in fact it takes just a few minutes. This a a dish with a fabulous sauce that tops it all off. Goes great with Roasted Red Potatoes.

1/2 cup dry white wine

1/4 cup lemon juice

handful of Italian flat leaf parsley, chopped

Season breasts with salt and pepper. Dredge breasts through flour and shake off excess. Heat saute pan with olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon butter over medium high heat, once hot add chicken breasts to pan, should sizzle immediately, reduce heat to medium and cook a few minutes on each side until golden brown, 4-5 minutes. When cooked through, remove to plate. Add capers to hot pan and let cook for one minute. Add white wine, boil and reduce by half. Add lemon juice and whisk in butter, reduce heat.
