HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN PICCATA

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN PICCATA 
Begin by prepping the chicken breasts. First slice each chicken breast in half horizontally.

Place the chicken breasts in a large sealable plastic bag and, using a meat mallet or rolling pin, pound them to an even 1/4-inch thickness. This ensures that they cook quickly and evenly.

In a shallow bowl, combine the flour and parmesan cheese. Season the chicken with salt and pepper; dredge in the flour mixture; shake off excess and set aside.

Heat the oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the pan and cook for until the first side is golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes.

Flip the chicken and cook until the second side is golden, about 3 minutes more.

Discard any excess oil from the pan. Add the stock, lemon juice, and bring to a boil, scraping up any brown bits from the pan. Gently boil for about two minutes, until slightly reduced.
