Mom's Easy and Quick Recipe for 'Chicken Piccata' Is a Weeknight Lifesaver

You’re going to fall in love with this 30-minute recipe for chicken piccata. We love those salty capers in that buttery-lemon sauce. TikTok content creator @marriedtobbq shares her recipe for easy, weeknight chicken piccata, and we're so happy she did!

A restaurant-quality meal in under 30 minutes. Dinner will sure be delicious tonight!

We love chicken piccata, but we almost never make it on a weeknight. This 30-minute recipe looks so easy and so convenient. We're thrilled to be able to add this to our weeknight menu. To begin this recipe, simply season thin chicken breasts with salt and pepper and then dredge them in flour. Cook them in a hot frying pan with butter and olive oil until golden brown. Set them aside and then, in the same pan, start your sauce. 

Add in more butter, minced shallots, and minced garlic. When the shallots are almost translucent, add in your bone broth and let it reduce to half. Add more butter, lemon juice, capers, and a dash of heavy cream. Add the chicken breast back to the sauce, and top with lemon slices and fresh parsley. My goodness! That could not be easier, and it could not look any tastier!

The audience was very excited to see this simple recipe, and viewer @CookingwithZandge_s commented, “Omg memory unlocked. I always forget about this.” We forgot to make this meal, too! Viewer @Eric Valdivia978 added, “I have to have piccata at least once a month. It’s a fave. Love making it.” We're so happy to have this in our recipe box and we will be making it all the time, too.

Thankfully, we have capers in the pantry. And now this savory meal will be on our table tonight!
