Baked Piccata Chicken Recipe
Makes 4 servings
Ingredients: 4 boneless and skinless chicken breast halves, 3 tablespoons (45 ml) olive oil, 1 cup (250 ml) chicken stock, 1/2 teaspoon (3 ml) salt, 1/4 teaspoon (1 ml) freshly ground black pepper, 1/2 cup (125 ml) all-purpose flour, 4 tablespoons (60 ml) capers, drained and rinsed, 2-3 tablespoons (30-45 ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice, 3 tablespoons (45 ml) unsalted butter
Instructions: Preheat your oven to 350º F (175º C). Cut chicken breasts into half crosswise, then pound with a mallet to 1/2-inch (1.25 cm) thickness. Season the meat with salt and black pepper.
Place all-purpose flour in a shallow bowl. Dip seasoned chicken breasts in flour to coat both sides, then shake off excess.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil over medium-high heat. Working in batches, brown chicken on both sides, then remove from the skillet and transfer to an ungreased 13×9-in (32.5×22.5 cm) baking dish. Pour in chicken stock and lemon juice, add capers and stir well. Whisk in the butter, one tablespoon (15 ml) at a time, until creamy.
Pour the creamy sauce over browned chicken breasts. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink.
Remove baked chicken piccata from the oven and transfer to serving plates. Sprinkle with capers and garnish with lemon wedges. Serve immediately.
