Piccata is a traditional dish of sliced meat covered with a delicate butter sauce with lemon & capers. The blend of briny capers with tangy lemon is a superb complement to the butterflied chicken breasts in my quick & easy recipe. It fills the house with fragrant spice aromas!

Arrange chicken on a large sheet of plastic wrap and cover them with another sheet. Use a flat meat hammer to pound chicken breasts to about 1/4-inch thickness. In a large bowl, add flour, salt, pepper & Parmesan and mix well. Rinse chicken breasts in water and dredge them in the flour mixture until coated well on all sides. In a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil and 2 tablespoons butter until shimmering. Cook the chicken breasts (in two batches if needed) and fry until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side. Add stock, lemon juice and capers to the pan and scrape up brown bits from the bottom with a spatula. Cook until sauce has reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Whisk in remaining butter. Arrange chicken on a serving platter, top with butter sauce and garnish with parsley & lemon wedges.
