Yield
2 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and about 3 tablespoons sauce)

Prep: 7 minutes; Cook: 8 minutes. You can use this basic piccata recipe with either pork or veal cutlets, too. Just make sure you pound the meat to 1/4-inch thickness.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place chicken between 2 sheets of heavy duty plastic wrap; pound to 1/4-inch thickness. Sprinkle chicken with salt.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken. Cook over medium-high heat 3 to 4 minutes on each side until golden brown.

Step 3

Remove chicken from pan; keep warm. Add broth and lemon juice to pan, scraping pan with a wooden spoon to loosen browned bits. Cook, uncovered, over high heat 30 seconds or until slightly reduced. Stir in capers. Pour sauce over chicken. Sprinkle with pepper and parsley.
