BHG Delish Dish

Stirring Up Ideas In The Kitchen

Chicken Piccata

Hello again! This is Julia from the food blog (you can also ALWAYS find me on PINTEREST) with a new recipe I made from the Better Homes and Gardens archives! This Chicken Piccata is one of the easiest recipes you’ll ever make! Just take a look at the list of ingredients and the recipe instructions – and you’ll see how easy this recipe is! But, for all of its simplicity, there is A LOT of flavor in this dish, and the chicken comes out moist and juicy every time! It’s a gluten free recipe, and it tastes so out-of-this world delicious! In a nutshell, it’s pan-fried chicken thighs with garlic, lemon, and capers in a juicy chicken broth:

I followed the recipe instructions precisely, the only thing I changed was that I used chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts. I was so curious to see how the chicken thighs would come out in this recipe, and they were outstanding! The presentation was beautiful (as I am sure it would be with the chicken breasts)! The chicken thighs were pretty juicy, and they released quite a lot of juice while cooking in the pan (in addition to the lemon juice and the chicken broth that the recipe calls for), so, to soak it all up, I’ve used plain white rice to serve as a side dish – which I highly recommend, especially if you decide to go with the chicken thighs (vs. not so juicy chicken breasts)! The recipe is SO EASY. First, you pan-fry the chicken thighs in butter, seasoned with salt and pepper:

Then, remove the chicken from the pan, and quickly make a super-easy and super-juicy sauce according to the recipe instructions:

Finally, return the chicken to the skillet to heat through. That’s pretty much it!

And, here are the changes I made to the original BHG recipe:

  • The only change (or substitution) I made was to use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts. The recipe calls for 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut in half horizontally. I used 4 chicken thighs instead. It was more than an equal trade!
  • I served these thighs with plain white rice on the side – it was a perfect side dish for this recipe! The rice soaked up all the juicy deliciousness!
