Chicken Piccata

Chicken piccata is the simple kind of dish that tastes so good you would swear it takes much more to create it. So what is chicken piccata? Well, piccata is a dish made up of meat sliced or pounded thin, then served with a bright lemon, butter, and/or wine sauce. It’s then topped with salty capers and fresh parsley. Its origins are in Italy where veal is most common but chicken piccata is most common in North America.

A favorite way of serving chicken piccata is over pasta, usually a long noodle such as linguine. For a change of pace, you could try serving it over mashed potatoes, or even roasted potatoes. Any vegetable that is enhanced by lemon would be a good choice. If you’re roasting potatoes why not toss some broccoli or cauliflower on the tray as well for an easy meal. Noodles made out of zucchini would make a lovely modern take on this classic dish.
