Forget everything you ever knew about loving Chicken Marsala, Chicken Parmigiano, or Chicken Cacciatore! One bite of Chicken Piccata and you’ll forget how much you even love those Chicken cousins! Piccata has way more kapow! flavor, plus, it’s inexpensive, fast and super-easy to make! Make some tonight and WOW your guests for around 10 dollars for all four entrees. Now who doesn’t love that?
Pound the chicken breasts with a kitchen mallet to about a half inch thick and cut into pieces the size of a deck of cards
In a separate pan on medium heat, add extra virgin olive oil, about a half teaspoon of the crushed garlic and let the spinach wilt for a couple of minutes. remove from pan and set aside.
Just peel, chop, and boil some potatoes (about 5 large) .
with a mortar and pestle, I added about 2 garlic cloves (pushed through a garlic press) about a teaspoon of sea salt, about a teaspoon of anchovy paste, and crushed it into a paste with the pestle. Then added about a 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil. Stir.
Toss with the warm potatoes. Add a couple tablespoons of capers and chopped fresh parsley, and cracked pepper. You can add a splash of white wine vinegar if you want it a little tangier.
I LOVE this salad way more than any potato salad with mayonnaise.
