Happy Mother's Day!

Since I have been so delinquent in posting new recipes lately, I thought that at least a Mother's Day recipe was in order. So, for all of those mothers out there, here's some chicken piccata for you!

Chicken Piccata

Serves 4

4 chicken breasts - beaten thin with a mallet

1 T flour

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. paprika

2 T olive oil

1 large thinly sliced lemon, half-juiced

2 T butter

1 medium shallot, diced

1/3 cup white wine

1/3 cup chicken broth

2 T capers

Mix flour, paprika, and salt, and dredge the chicken breasts through the flour mixture. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add the lemon slices to the skillet and cook 1 minute on each side, then set aside. Add chicken to the pan, and cook until golden brown, then set aside. Melt 1 T butter in the pan, add shallots, and cook until softened. Pour in wine and broth and bring to a boil. Stir in lemon juice, butter, and capers. Pour over chicken, and garnish with lemon slices.
