The word Piccata means “larded”, although an Italian word, this chicken piccata dish originated not in Italy but rather in US. It resembles Sicilian cooking style with Northern Italian influences. Irrespective of its origin, I’m yet to find anyone who didn’t exclaim gasps of food-joy whilst eating this succulent buttery lemony chicken dish.  Enjoy Chicken Piccata!
