Lemon Chicken Piccata
December 15, 2010

This recipe was delicious with some modifications. I gave it 5 stars because I think it would have been good without the modifications too... I just never cook exactly by any recipe. Here is what I did differently... I pounded out the chicken but did not cut it in medallions. I pan fried it in a cast iron skillet using olive oil instead of vegetable oil. After the chicken, I wiped out the pan and added a little more olive oil and some margarine (I have a dairy allergic person in my family so no butter). I added 2 cloves of garlic then a 1/2 lb of thinly sliced baby portabella mushrooms. After the mushrooms released their juices, I added the liquid. I used 2 cups of good chicken stock plus 1/2 cup of a reisling. I also double the lemon juice and left out the lemon slices. I zested one lemon into the sauce and saved the lemon slices for plate garnish. When correcting seasoning at the end, I added a generous amount of sea salt and fresh cracked pepper and a pinch of raw sugar. I served the chicken with the extra sauce over mini bow tie pasta. All three of my kids ate this and my husband gave it a thumbs up and I loved it. I would definitely make this one again!
