Taste Experiment: Chicken Picatta

January 15, 2014

Stolen from my Mom over the holidays, this version of chicken picatta is a delicious work in progress. I’ll update the ingredients with more specific amount guidance as I figure it out…


  • 1-2 chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup flour / chicken breast
  • 1/4 tsp salt / chicken breast
  • 1/4 tsp pepper / chicken breast
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Tbsp butter
  • 2 tsp capers
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/8 cup lemon juice
  • Angel hair pasta, 1-2 nests


  1. Slice or pound chicken breasts into thin strips, roughly 1/8" thin.
  2. Bring water for pasta to a boil.
  3. Combine flour, salt, pepper.
  4. Dredge chicken pieces in seasoning and brown in olive oil over medium heat.
  5. Remove chicken from pan to rest. (Optionally dust with seasoning a second time.)
  6. Add pasta to boiling water.
  7. Scrape remnants in pan and add: butter, lemon juice, white wine, and capers. Bring to a simmer, 10 minutes.
  8. Add chicken slices to sauce and simmer until hot.

Serve over angel hair pasta.
