A personal kitchen diary. I try new recipes and make notes on what works and what doesn't. Sometimes I can things, and sometimes I dry herbs. This is the story of my kitchen.

Merri’s Faux Chicken Piccata

Merri’s Faux Chicken Piccata

I’ve posted this before I think, but because this blog is named What’s Happening in Merri’s Kitchen, I’m posting it again since this is indeed what happened in my kitchen tonight.

I had some chicken cutlets and decided to do them piccata style.

First I heated some olive oil in a pan, and seasoned two chicken cutlets with garlic salt and Italian Seasoning.

 

 

While I cooked the chicken

 

 

I cut up some canned and drained artichoke hearts, and quartered a lemon, and got some capers out.

 

 

Once the chicken was done I removed it, deglazed the pan with a squeeze of lemon juice, and added the artichoke hearts and capers.

 

 

After browning up the edges of the artichokes a bit, I added some butter and there rest of the lemon juice from my lemon, and cooked it down.

 

 

Then I served it with a Caprese salad.
