Crispy Chicken Piccata w/ Butter Caper Sauce
Easy Italian classic. Perfect for weekend dinners that don't take long to make.
Take 3 bowls and place them close together and fill one with 1 cup of flour, next bowl 3 eggs mixed, the last one adds 1 cup of panko breadcrumbs, 1/2 cup of standard bread crumbs and 1/2 cup of Italian cheese blend.
Place a skillet with 3 pieces of bacon on medium heat and cook the bacon. We are looking to use the leftover bacon grease as seasoning to our oil that will be used to cook the chicken with.
Add 1 cup of olive oil & half a stick of butter to the pan to shallow fry the Chicken Tenders with. The same pan you cooked the bacon in. Melt butter over low heat while you dredge the Chicken.
Take one piece of chicken and place into the flour and cover on all sides. Then into the egg, and finally the breadcrumbs. I suggest pressing down on the chicken while adding the breadcrumbs. Helps the bread crumbs stick and gives a better-finished texture.
Turn up the heat to medium-high now. Once up to temperature add in the chicken making sure to not overcrowd the pan. That brings down the temperature too much and will cause the chicken to become oily. Just don't add the chicken all at once and you'll be good.
Fry to golden brown perfection. You can "hold" the chicken in the oven on low until your ready to eat. Just don't leave it in there very long.
