Creamy Chicken Piccata

  • Author: Handy Chef
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 Servings 1x


A creamy version of an Italian classic. It's super simple and easy to make.



4 chicken breasts

1 egg

salt, pepper, and garlic powder

flour for dredging

olive oil for the pan

parsley for garnish

For the sauce:

3 tablespoons capers

1 cup heavy cream

1 cup chicken broth

1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon flour

2 tbsp lemon juice


  1. Sprinkle chicken with seasonings.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk egg and set aside. Prepare to flour the chicken by creating a different space with flour on a plate.
  3. Dredge chicken in flour, egg, then flour again.
  4. Pour a bit of olive oil in the pan, add the chicken, and cook completely (it should be golden brown on both sides).
  5. Remove chicken from pan.
  6. Add capers, chicken broth, and lemon juice and simmer for 1-2 minutes. This helps release some of the flavor from the capers into the liquid.
  7. Add the heavy cream.
  8. Add in flour a little at a time and stir after each time more flour is added. Let the mixture simmer until it has thickened slightly.

  9. Add chicken back to pan and let it heat for about 5 minutes.
