Chicken Piccata

A delicious chicken dish that is usually served with a lemon flavoured butter sauce. An absolute favourite of all. Here I have made a simple dip which goes well with this. An impressive dish that is so easy to make. Serve with a dip and garden fresh green salad.
2 boneless chicken breasts
1 Tbsp chopped parsley
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp thyme
salt to taste
a pinch of crushed black pepper
1 egg, beaten well
1 cup bread crumbs

  •  Slice the chicken breadth wise into thin rounds(like potato chips) and keep aside.
  • Marinate the chicken with the chopped parsley, thyme, pepper, salt and lime juice. Keep aside for 10 minutes.
  • Add the beaten egg to the marinated chicken and rub it on to the chicken pieces well.
  • Coat each slice of the chicken in with the bread crumbs and deep fry in oil until golden on both sides.
  • Drain onto an absorbent paper.
  • Serve hot with a dip.

For the dip
4 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 Tbsp tomato ketchup
1 tsp paprika powder
1 tsp finely chopped parsley

Mix all the ingredients for the dip well in a bowl and serve with the chicken piccata.
