Guest Blogger Mondays.....Chicken Piccata by Leslie


About Leslie:  I'm a wife of 5 years and a SAHM of two young children.  I never really get to eat a full meal throughout the day so dinner is always a big deal!  I try and always have a protein, starch and vegetable at dinner time and I have just recently found a new found love for cooking, especially with new recipes...that is why I love Everyday Sisters so much!

 Chicken Piccata
 The dish I am sharing with you today was passed down from my sister shortly after I was married.  It's a favorite in my household and I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.


1lb.  Chicken Breasts
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. paprika
1/2 - 1 cup olive oil
1/4 cup marsala wine
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tsp. chopped parsley
1 lemon (optional)


Trim off fat and cut chicken breasts in half so they are no more than 1/2 inch thick. In a plastic bag (or bowl) mix flour, salt, pepper and paprika (I like to add more paprika and less salt).  Place two chicken slices in the bag and coat with flour.  Repeat until all the chicken has been coated.  Heat olive oil in large skillet on medium heat.  Brown chicken for two to three minutes on each side.  They will brown quickly.  Remove from pan and set aside on plate. Wipe skillet clean.  Add marsala wine and lemon juice to pan on medium heat.  When liquid thickens, add back the chicken.  Cut lemon into slices and lay on top of chicken.  Sprinkle with parsley.  Serve immediately and Enjoy!  I paired this dish with steamed broccoli and rice but anything will really compliment it.  .
