HOMEMADE CHICKEN PICCATA RECIPE
2 TBS butter
2 TBS canola oil
4 large skinless, boneless chicken breasts
juice from one fresh lemon, divided in half
zest from the same lemon
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp homemade garlic powder
1/2 tsp homemade onion powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 of the fresh lemon juice (from above)
2 TBS cornstarch or flour
1/4 cup water
Serve over buttered angel hair pasta
PREHEAT the oven to 250 degrees.
Pound the chicken breasts until flattened.
Add the butter and canola oil in a heavy skillet on medium high. While it's heating up, combine the flour with the garlic powder, onion powder, lemon zest, paprika and place in a resealable bag.
Wet the chicken pieces in half of the lemon juice and place in the bag; shaking to coat evenly. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Fry in the skillet until golden brown and completely cooked; juices will be clear. Place the chicken in the oven on a baking sheet to keep warm while you make the sauce.
Bring the chicken broth and lemon juice to a boil in a saucepan. Whisk the cornstarch with the 1/4 cup of water and slowly add to the broth; whisking continuously until thickened.
To serve: place some of the buttered pasta on your plate and top with a chicken breast. Pour the lemon sauce over all.
Note: You may steak or grill vegetables for a side dish. It is also delicious with warm homemade bread.
I enjoy this with a fresh salad topped with my homemade Italian dressing. Making homemade salad dressing defiantly makes the meal.
