Chicken Piccata


Chicken Piccata always reminds me of the first episode of Top Chef, Season 4, wherein one of the cheftestants did not know what chicken piccata was and made a mess of a dish. You can read about that particular episode here. Chicken piccata, based on the critique from that episode as well as other recipes, is a breaded chicken cutlet accompanied by a sauce that includes white wine, lemon juice, capers, and butter. I'm not a huge fan of the breading process, even though I love to eat breaded food, so I chose to skip that part. Since I am not being judged by the likes of Tom Colicchio and Rocco DiSpirito, I feel ok with not breading my cutlets. If were going to bread the cutlets, I would employ the technique I used in my Chicken Milanese recipe.
