How to Make Chicken Picata


  1. Pound chicken filets between plastic wrap until 1/4 inch thickness.
  2. Brown filets in hot olive oil for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Removes from the skillet.
  3. Add to the skillet onions and garlic. Cook for 1 minutes stirring.
    Add lemon juice and sherry. Cook at medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld and the juices to cook down a little.
  4. Return chicken to the pan, covering with the juices. Heat for 2 minutes.
    I serve this with Mexican or flavored rice and call it a meal.
