Garlic Chicken Piccata is an easy family favourite recipe adding a garlic twist to an authentic Piccata! Chicken lightly dusted with flour and parmesan cheese, lightly fried until a soft golden crust forms and finished off in a buttery, silky, lemon garlic sauce with capers and white wine or stock!
In a large pan or skillet heat 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. When hot, fry 2 pieces of chicken first until golden on each side and cooked through (about 3-4 minutes each side, depending on the thickness of your chicken). Transfer to a warm plate.
In the same pan, melt one more tablespoon of butter. Fry the garlic for 30 seconds until fragrant. Add the wine and bring to a boil, scraping up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan for extra flavour. Cook until wine almost evaporates, stirring occasionally.
Pour in the stock, lemon juice and capers and allow to boil until reduced slightly (about 6 minutes). Adjust salt and pepper if needed.
Add remaining butter to the pan, allow to melt, then add chicken back into the pan along with all of the juices from the plate and simmer for 5 minutes to heat through.
*If your sauce doesn't thicken for some reason or you’re pressed for time, mix together 1 teaspoon of cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of water until smooth and lump free, then pour it into the centre of the pan while sauce is boiling (before adding your chicken back into the pan -- at Step 5). Whisk it in quickly to blend it right into the sauce. Once your sauce has thickened, add your chicken and continue recipe from Step 6.
