Chicken Piccata

Mashed potatoes or roasted seasonal root vegetables make the perfect accompaniment to this quick and easy Chicken Piccata.

Ingredients

4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

2 ounces all-purpose flour, divided (about 1/2 cup)

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 1/2 tablespoons butter, divided

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

1/4 cup finely chopped shallots

4 medium garlic cloves, thinly sliced

1/2 cup dry white wine

3/4 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth, divided

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 1/2 tablespoons drained capers

3 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley.

Preparation

1. Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound to 1/2-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet. Place 1 teaspoon flour in a small bowl, and place remaining flour in a shallow dish. Sprinkle both sides of chicken evenly with salt and pepper. Dredge chicken in flour in shallow dish; shake off excess.

2. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add chicken to pan; sauté 4 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm.

3. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in pan; swirl to coat. Add shallots to pan; sauté 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add wine; bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Cook until liquid almost evaporates, stirring occasionally. Add 1/4 cup broth to reserved 1 teaspoon flour; stir until smooth. Add remaining 1/2 cup broth to pan; bring to a boil. Cook until reduced by half (about 5 minutes). Stir in flour mixture; cook 1 minute or until slightly thick, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; stir in remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, juice, and capers. Place 1 chicken breast half on each of 4 plates; top each serving with about 2 tablespoons sauce. Sprinkle each serving with about 2 teaspoons parsley.
