- 1.33 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into cutlets
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 1/2 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 cup shallots, diced
- 4 U garlic cloves, minced
- 1 1/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
- 1 U Juice of 1 lemon
- 1 1/2 tbsp capers
- 2 tbsp chopped parsley
- 1 tbsp whole grain mustard
Sprinkle the chicken cutlets on both sides with salt and pepper. Set aside 1 tsp. of flour. Spread the remaining flour out on a large plate and gently coat each chicken breast with flour. Set aside.
In a skillet or saute pan, melt 3/4 tbsp of butter over medium high heat. Add 1/2 tbsp olive oil and a touch of cooking spray if needed. Add the chicken breast and cook for 4 minutes on each side. Then set aside and tent with tinfoil to keep them warm. While the chicken is cooking, mix 1 tsp of flour into 1/4 cup of chicken stock and set aside.
Add the other 1/2 tbsp of olive oil, shallots, and garlic to the pan. Cook for two minutes until fragrant but not burnt.
Add 1/2 cup of chicken stock and scrape all of the brown bits off the bottom of the pan. Cook for about 5 minutes until the chicken broth almost evaporates.
Add the chicken broth you mixed with flour and stir until smooth. Then add the final 1/2 cup chicken broth and bring it to a boil. Let it reduce by half and then turn the burner to low.
Stir in the butter, capers, mustard, lemon juice, and parsley. Serve each chicken breast with 2 tbsp of piccata sauce.
