I am a BIG piccata fan. I like Salmon Piccata, Chicken Piccata, or even just the Piccata sauce over noodles. I just love it all. I honestly don’t know if it is the capers, the lemon or both…but I love it.
A Quick Dinner Option
I know that dinner during the week can be quite the chore. You get home from work, school or practice and everyone is starving and honestly your just wishing you went through the drive thru instead of having to get dinner made. I feel your pain, I have been there plenty of times.
I have good news…this chicken piccata comes together super quick and is AMAZING!! You can cook the entire meal in the time it takes to boil the pasta. It doesn’t get much quicker than that.
The sauce….OHHH the Sauce
Like I said before I love piccata. I love all forms of piccata (chicken, fish or veal) but really I think it is the sauce that draws me in. There is just something so good about the lemon cream sauce studded with capers giving it the perfect salty bite.
It is light but still rich and decadent. It is simple to fix but seems kinda fancy and special. You can serve over anything, even just pasta, it is just so, so good.
