2 PERDUE® Fresh Boneless Skinless Chicken BreastsorPERDUE® HARVESTLAND® Free Range Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup white wine
1/2 cup chicken stock
2 lemons, one juiced, one thinly sliced for garnish
2 tbsp. brined capers, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp. unsalted butter
4 tbsp. chopped parsley
Place chicken breast on cutting board. Place hand flat on top of breast. Use sharp knife to slice into one side of breast, starting at thicker end and ending at thin point. Be careful not to cut all the way through to other side. Open breast so it looks like a butterfly. Cover breast with plastic wrap and pound with meat pounder or rolling pin to create even thickness. Slice in half lengthwise to create two equal pieces of chicken breast. Repeat with second breast.
Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Dredge chicken in flour, shaking off excess. Sauté chicken breasts 2 to 3 minutes per side, until chicken is browned. Transfer chicken to plate. You may have to cook chicken in batches to avoid crowding pan.
To the same skillet add white wine and bring to boil, scraping all tasty brown bits from bottom of pan. When wine has reduced by half, add chicken stock, lemon juice and capers. Return chicken to pan, reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.
Transfer chicken to serving platter. Whisk butter and parsley into skillet sauce. Pour sauce over chicken and garnish with lemon slices.
TIP: For a fun presentation, serve Chicken Piccata in skillet garnished with lemon slices.
