Chicken Piccata

Chicken Piccata is the kind of dish I suspect you will make a lot more of once you have tasted it. The capers in this recipe is what makes this chicken so special. They really enhance the dish and add a sour and salty flavour.

For a long time, i thought capers were something to do with fish. ‘What a dork’, i hear you say. For those of you who are as equally as confused as I was, this is what they actually are.

This same recipe would work really well with cod. I haven’t yet tried it but sometimes you just know!
As a side note, my precious loved ones have mentioned that my amazing spatula looks like a piece of salmon or something so apologies for that. 🙁 Thanks family!
By the way if you have kids, this recipe is a winner. Even the fussiest kid will love this. My husband love it too. It is one of the recipes that I couldn’t wait to get up because I know it is so good.
