What is Chicken Piccata?

Chicken Piccata is a dish where chicken breast is sliced and covered in flour, cooked in butter or oil, and topped with lemons and capers for a light, complex sauce.

“Picatta” comes from the Italian word for pounded meat, but refers to the thin slice of the chicken (or sometimes veal) used in this recipe. Picatta is always served with lemon juice and capers for the unique, bright taste associated with this classic, restaurant-favorite meal.

What are capers?

Capers are often used in Italian cuisine, topping pasta or meat dishes for a briny, olive-adjacent flavor profile. Capers are the unripened buds of the Caper bush, a flowering perennial plant, giving their taste floral notes. Prepared and packed like olives in a brine, you can expect capers to add a bit of salty tang to your dish.
