Recipe - Chicken Piccata
Yet another great recipe from Weight Watchers "Take-Out Tonight" cookbook. This is a great cookbook that I've got many good recipes from! It's a great one to having in your cookbook arsenal!
Makes 4 Servings
2 tablespoons coarse-grained Dijon mustard
1 large egg
1/2 cup Italian-seasoned dried bread crumbs
4 (1/4-pound) skinless boneless chicken breast halves, lightly pounded
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 tablespoons dry vermouth or chicken broth (I use chicken broth)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1. Combine the mustard and egg in a shallow bowl. Place the bread crumbs on a sheet of wax paper. Dip the chicken in the mustard mixture, then in the bread crumbs.
2. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Swirl in the oil, then add the chicken, Cook, until golden and cooked through, about 5 minutes on each side. Transfer the chicken to a platter and keep warm.
3. Add the vermouth (or chicken broth) and lemon juice to the same skillet. Simmer 30 seconds; stir in the parsley. Pour the sauce over the chicken and garnish with the lemon slices.

If you are persistent, you will reach your goal. If you are consistent, you will keep it.
