I had an excellent lunch today: chicken piccata, fresh hot baguette, and an orange for dessert. It was so delicious I'm going to share the recipe with you! I originally got it from, but I adapted it because ew, capers.

Chicken Piccata Recipe

  • 2 chicken breasts (butterflied, google it) or 4 "aiguilles" whatever that means in English, they were cheaper than the breasts; I flattened them with the heel of my hand
  • salt & pep & pepper
  • a bit o' flour
  • 2 tbsp ish unsalted butter
  • 4 tbsp ish olive oil
  • some squirts of lemon juice
  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Dredge in flour, shake off excess.
  2. Melt some butter in some olive oil. Throw in the chicken. Cook 2mn one side, flip, 2mn other side.
  3. Remove chicken from pot. Add lemon squirts and maybe some more oil/butter. Lemon juice will make it sizzle like crazy so get your hands/face out of the way.
  4. Throw chicken back into pot for a bit to give it that lemon zest. Remove chicken, arrange artfully on plate.
  5. Melt some more butter in pot. Then drizzle oil/butter/lemon juice mixture luxuriously over chicken. Serve with bread. Watch an episode of Pushing Daisies. Be sad that it was canceled. Find a petition online to bring it back and be the 80,000th person to sign it.

I had to go shopping before lunch. Here is my shopping list.
