Chicken Piccata

Ingredients:

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 2 cup flour, with salts and pepper
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4  cup lemon juice
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1/4 – 1 teaspoon natural food coloring (2 handfuls of spinach leaves and water, heated)

Directions:

  1. Cut up chicken into pieces – either bite sizes or cut the breasts into halves or thirds. Regardless, if you do anything larger than bite sized pieces, pound them a bit, too!
  2. Place flour, salts and pepper in a plastic bag. Dust chicken pieces with flour then brown over medium to medium-high heat in portion of butter. Add lemon juice, chicken stock and capers and simmer on medium low until chicken is done. (Total cook time is probably around 20 minutes or so.)
  3. Remove from heat and add rest of butter. Add green food coloring until desired shade of green
  4. Serve with pasta or mashed potatoes
