Panko-Breaded Chicken Piccata

One of my favorite blogs to follow is What's Gaby Cooking? and is written by Gaby. She just finished culinary school, but she has some excellent-looking recipes that she has blogged about that I have wanted to try. I figured I would sometime, and this week happens to be that sometime.

Her recipe for Chicken Piccata looked scrumptious, so that's the first one we tried. But we made one alteration by substituting panko for the regular breadcrumbs.

To start, dredge the chicken in the flour, then the eggs, then the panko. Move to a skillet and cook with the olive oil.

When they're done, set aside on a foil-lined baking sheet and cook them all for 10 minutes at 400 degrees.

Then in a saucepan, add some butter, the lemon juice, lemon halves, wine and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and then whisk in the rest of the butter.

Spoon some of the sauce over the chicken.

The sauce paired really well with the chicken and our chicken was cooked perfectly. The combination of frying and baking worked really well. The sauce conveyed the flavor of the wine and lemon quite well. Be sure to check out Gaby's blog.

But I had a plan for the leftovers, so check by tomorrow for that meal.
