Chicken Piccata

Third time trying this one and think I’ve finally got it just right. 😋

I’ve served with long grain wild rice and Brussels sprouts or chicken broccoli rice.

I was so excited to eat that I took my first pic without drizzling the sauce over the chicken!

Super yummy!!!

NOTE: Traditionally, Chicken Piccata has capers, but we skip as the kid and I are not fans. If you want them in yours, consider adding up to 2 Tbsp drained brined capers to your butter sauce before pouring over chicken.

TIPS: Ensure your cooked chicken has reached 165° or continue in 2-minute increments until it reaches that.
