Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and 1 tablespoon sauce)

Prepare chicken breasts scallopini-style by pounding them into thin, quick-cooking servings, then dredge in lemon juice and breadcrumbs and sauté for about 3 minutes on each side. The white wine sauce with capers complements the flavor of the lemon juice, and makes a great topping for wild rice.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Brush chicken with juice, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Dredge chicken in breadcrumbs.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add chicken to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until chicken is done. Remove from pan; keep warm.

Step 3

Add broth and wine to pan, and cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in capers and butter.

This recipe was very tasty and easy to make. I already had all of the ingredients, including the capers which gave it a flavor boost. It made enough for a second meal for my husband and myself. I will definitely make this recipe again. It will make a good company dish, also.

Great dish to make when you get home from work and want a tasty home cooked meal that is easy and quick. I doubled the sauce and served over brown rice with fresh green beans.

This isn't Chicken Scallopini ~ ~ This is Chicken Piccata. Chicken Scallopini is cooked with a pound of mushrooms and white wine.

Delicious and easy! I had four large chicken breasts which I cut in half after pounding thin. I therefore doubled the sauce (to which I added some garlic) - boiled some linquine and tossed with a little olive olive and drizzled with some of the extra sauce. Everyone loved it! (I did not use a non-stick skillet therefore used more olive oil in browning the chicken).
