Mushroom Chicken Piccata

  • Yield: 4 servings


4 chicken cutlets (4 ounces each)
Freshly ground black pepper
4teaspoons olive oil, divided
12ounces crimini mushrooms, quartered
2teaspoons minced fresh garlic
1/4cup dry white wine
1/2cup low-sodium chicken broth
1 lemon
2tablespoons capers, with juice


  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper on both sides and heat a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add 2 teaspoons olive oil and warm briefly, then add chicken and cook until nicely browned, about 2 minutes per side. Remove to a plate and cover.
  2. In the same pan, warm the remaining olive oil over medium-high heat. Add a single layer of mushrooms and cook, without stirring, for about 5 minutes or until mushrooms become red-brown on one side. Flip mushrooms, add garlic and cook another 2 minutes. Add wine and scrape up any browned bits in the pan. Bring to a boil and add stock, then return heat until it is bubbling nicely.
  3. Slice 4 very thin slices of lemon and add to the pan along with the juice from half of the lemon. Add capers and continue cooking sauce till it becomes a glaze, about 2 more minutes. Add the chicken to the sauce and heat through, then serve.
