     My hubby and I love Chicken Piccata, so I found this recipe and it tastes just like a restaurant's! Amazing, will definitely have to make it again!

Recipe from Cooking with Crystal

Here's what you need:

1 pound spaghetti
2 TBsp extra virgin olive oil
1 1/4 pounds chicken tenders or 3/4 chicken breasts
salt and pepper
2 TBsp unsalted butter
4 cloves garlic (chopped)
2 medium shallots or 1 small onion (chopped)
2 TBsp flour
1/2 cup white wine
juice of 1 lemon
1 cup chicken broth
3 TBsp capers (drained)
1/2 cup fresh parsley (chopped) * optional

How to make it:

Heat a deep skillet over medium heat.
Add 1 Tbsp EVOO and the chicken to the pan.
Season with salt and pepper.
Brown the chicken until lightly golden brown.
Remove from heat and set on serving dish while you make the sauce.
Return skillet to medium heat, add another Tbsp of EVOO, 1 Tbsp butter, the garlic, and shallots, sauté 3 minutes.
Stir in the flour and cook 2 minutes.
Whisk in wine and reduce liquid, for about 1 minute.
