Brace yourself folks. This chicken is ah-mazing. Lick your plate and plead for more amazing. Allow me to elaborate. First a chicken breast is breaded and pan fried until golden. Then that perfectly cooked, perfectly golden chicken breast is topped with a lemony-buttery-cappery (I may have made up words just now but that is how good this chicken is) sauce. It has capers. It has lemon juice. It has wine. And the best part: butter. Glorious, wonderful, melted butter. It just might be my new favorite way to prepare the sometimes rather boring chicken breast.
I was first introduced to chicken piccata at the restaurant that I use to work at but at that time I was not particularly interested in capers. The idea of eating a bud of a flower was a little too adventurous for my 16 year old palate. In the recent years however I have become rather fond of the salty wonderfulness that is capers. I especially enjoy them when they are paired with lemon, butter and wine. It is a palate pleasing flavor that is down right irresistible.
If you are looking for another way to enjoy capers check out Baked Salmon with Lemon Caper Butter. Enjoy!

While the big meal is certainly what we all look forward to on Thanksgiving, the appetizers are one of my favorite parts too. We’ve always had trays of salami and cheese, pickles and olives, deviled eggs and, my favorite, the dips. This year, I thought I’d throw a new one in the mix with this [...]
