Say "I love you" this Valenetine's Day with Chicken Piccata

For my mother-in law's birthday yesterday I made chicken picatta with angle hair pasta and a mixed greens salad. I think that this would make a wonder Valentine's Day dinner... so I'm posting it today.

Chicken Piccata

6 chicken breast halves
1 t. olive oil
8 green onions
2 cloves garlic
1/2 C. flour
2-3 T. olive oil
2 T. broth (chicken or veggie)
2 T. lemon juice
2 T. capers
2 T. white wine (optional)
black pepper
lemons and parsley to garnish

Rinse and dry chicken and flatten between sheets of plastic wrap.

Heat skillet with oil. Saute onions and garlic. Remove from pan and reserve. Coat chicken with flour. Shake off excess and brown chicken. Add the onions and garlic along with the broth, juice, capers and wine. Saute over high heat for two minutes. Sprinkle with pepper and garnish with lemons and parsley.

I forgot to take a photo of my creations... so I got this picture from Wikipedia

I hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day... Tonight I'm making shrimp cocktail. I'm picking up a small tray of sushi and we are going to have eggrolls and edamame on the side. Check out my Worth a Knit blog to see the homemade valentine's and toys I made for my kids.

Happy Valentine's Day,

  1. This recipe sounds to die for. We already had our Valentine's dinner, but I think I'll try it this weekend :) Glad you're back!
