Chicken Piccata
(click for recipe)

- 2 skinless and boneless chicken breasts, butterflied and then cut in half
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 cups all purpose flour, for dredging
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 cup chicken stock
- 1/4 cup brined capers, rinsed
- 1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Dredge chicken in flour and shake off excess.

In a large 10 or 12-inch skillet over medium high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter with
3 tablespoons olive oil. When butter and oil start to sizzle, add 2 pieces of chicken and
cook for 3 minutes. When chicken is browned, flip and cook other side for 3 minutes. Remove
and transfer to plate. Melt 2 more tablespoons butter and add another 2 tablespoons olive oil.
When butter and oil start to sizzle, add the other 2 pieces of chicken and brown both sides in
same manner. Remove pan from heat and add chicken to the plate.

Reduce heat to medium low and add the lemon juice, stock and capers. Return to stove and bring
to boil, scraping up brown bits from the pan for extra flavor. Check for seasoning. Return all
the chicken to the pan and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove chicken to platter. Add remaining
2 tablespoons butter to sauce and whisk vigorously. Pour sauce over chicken and garnish with parsley.
