Cooking for the CFO.... Chicken Piccata

Yes, in addition to feeding the kids I also usually cook for the wife (the Pollard CFO) and myself. This usually happens on weekends or after the kids go to bed. A 9pm dinner is not unusual at all. After we get our kitchen table finished we will all eat together. Here is one thing I make and the ingredients in case you are interested.

Chicken Piccata, the CFO's FAVORITE dish
2 - thin sliced chicken breasts (you can use regular ones but then you would need to pound them flat)
Mix 1 egg and 2 tablespoons of spicy brown mustard
Dip chicken in mixture then coat heavily with Italian bread crumbs
2 tablespoons of olive oil heated to med-high in 12 inch skillet
cook coated chicken for 5 min on one side - should be crispy brown
flip and cook 3 min on other side
Combine 3/4 cup white wine and 3/4 cup lemon juice (BE SURE to shake lemon juice... you will only make this mistake once)
Pour wine and lemon juice over chicken
Add small jar of capers
Simmer for 3-5 min (depending on how much you want to cook-down the sauce)
Serve over pasta

I like easy,

Al
