CREAMY CHICKEN PICCATA
Chicken Piccata is a classic Italian recipe that’s made with thin sliced chicken cutlets that are dredged in flour before being fried to a crispy golden brown. Topped with a tangy lemon sauce that’s spiked with capers, it’s simple chicken recipe that’s easy to prepare.
This version of chicken piccata has a creamy piccata sauce that’s loaded with mushrooms and artichokes making it a great option for a one pan meal.
HOW TO MAKE IT
My Creamy Chicken Piccata recipe couldn’t be easier to make….simply dredge your chicken in seasoned flour and add to a searing hot skillet.
Brown and then remove to a warm platter.
To make the piccata sauce, saute your veggies in a bit of butter then deglaze with wine and chicken stock. A splash of half and half makes it creamy without adding a ton of calories. AND….you only have on pan to clean. How AWESOME IS THAT???
