Here you get perfectly pan seared, golden brown and tender chicken breast cutlets, topped with a rich and bright lemon sauce and they're finished with tangy capers a touch of fresh herbs.

Let's just start out by stating the obvious, everything is better with a little cream added right? My mom taught me that and it's one of the most important things she ever taught me. Truth :).
I love how simple and quick this chicken dish is to make! It's definitely fit for a weeknight meal, yet it's elegant enough for serving to guests on the weekend. And it's something everyone can agree on.
Piccata Sauce Perfection
This version isn't skimpy with the sauce, and of course you'll absolutely love the fact that it's a rich and creamy sauce vs. a plain old basic brothy sauce. The piccata sauce doesn't contain an overwhelming amount of lemon juice, and I love what the little dab of butter offers and the way it pairs with the lemon.
It's chicken piccata perfection! I can never get enough of that golden brown exterior on chicken cutlets and the rich flavor all those browned bits at the bottom of the pan add so much flavor. They really build up the flavor profile of the sauce.
