Mushroom Lover's Chicken Piccata

Light and lemony, this dish breathes new life into (yawn) sometimes boring chicken breast. 



  1. On a plate, stir together flour, salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder.
  2. Dredge chicken in flour/spice mixture and shake off excess.
  3. In a large skillet heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium high heat. When oil is hot, add mushrooms and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Cook mushrooms until brown, tossing occasionally. Remove mushrooms from pan.
  5. To the same pan, add 1 ½ tablespoon olive oil. When oil is hot, add chicken pieces and cook for 3 minutes.
  6. When chicken browns, flip and cook the other side for 3 minutes. Remove and transfer to plate.
  7. Into the pan add the wine, lemon juice, chicken stock and capers. Return to stove and bring to boil, scraping up brown bits from the pan for extra flavor.
  8. Return the chicken to the pan and simmer, uncovered for 5 minutes. Remove chicken to platter.
  9. Add 1 tablespoon butter to sauce and whisk vigorously.
  10. Pour sauce over chicken and garnish with chopped parsley.
