Chicken Piccata

So, I’ve been thinking about what I’m going to give up for Lent this year.  I’ve been tossing a few ideas around but in the end, I’ve decided to go with desserts. I’ve gotten in a habit of enjoying a little something sweet after dinner, and I think it will be best for my health to lay off it for awhile. No more this and certainly none of that.  40 days – let’s GO!

*Disclaimer, I will give up dessert for Lent, but I’m going to let myself enjoy cake on my birthday (March 12).  I’m not sure if you can fully celebrate without some sort of birthday treat.  

What are you giving up?

 Now, on to an awesome dish.  Chicken Piccata.  This meal is awesome. So fresh and the crispy chicken is out of this world.  (recipe from here

Here’s what you’ll need:
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 4 tbs margarine
  • 1 tbs butter
  • juice of 1 lemon, lemon halves reserved
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
Cut chicken into tenders.  Place breadcrumbs in one dish and beaten egg in another.  Dip each chicken breast in egg, then breadcrumbs.
Heat 2 tbs margarine over medium heat.  Cook chicken breasts for 3 – 4 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Add more margarine as needed. Remove and set aside.
Melt butter in same pan.  Add lemon juice and chicken broth.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook for 2 minutes.
Serve sauce over chicken. Garnish with reserved lemon slices.
Enjoy!
