Chicken Picatta for Friends

Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty of California, Inc. (lic. #01878277) DRE# 00949880

     I love to cook!  Check that.  I love to eat and, therefore, I cook.  And there are few dishes that I enjoy more than chicken picatta.  Recently, my dad and I made this dish for my family and Brian England.  They seemed to enjoy it and I received a special request from Kathy Streib for the recipe.  I used this recipe from Cook's Illustrated.

            Chicken Picatta

    Of course, there were some improvisations to the original recipe.  We seasoned the flour used to dredge the chicken in.  We also omitted cooking the dish with the addition of lemon slices.  I have done that before and it does enhance the looks of the dish, but I do not think it contrubutes much to the flavor.  We also added about 3 ounces of diced prosciutto with the shallots.  Yummy! ! !

Raymond Henson, SRES, GRI is such an amazing cook, especially with his Dad's help in the kitchen!  The chicken picatta was amazing!!!  He did not even mention the delectable chocolate tort that he made for dessert, but perhaps that is for another post?

Ron and Alexandra Seigel, I hope your lunch at Carlito's was wonderful.

It was a special treat, Michael Jacobs.  Cooking with my dad always is the special part.  He is a fantastic cook and I have so much to learn.

Trish Cole, if you do get a chance to try it, I would love to hear back regarding the results.

Thank you for the inspiration to write the blog, Kathy Streib.   I have been a little distracted lately and I needed the inspiration.

I appreciate you stopping by Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR.

Hi Bob Crane.  Let me know how it turns out and if you like the recipe.  Good luck!

Brian England,  I would write about the chocolate tart, but we ate it so fast that I didn't get a picture.  It will be something I make again, for sure.  Thank you for making the long trek to spend the evening with us.  The company was better than the food.  I can't wait until we can have a party in that backyard!

Hi Grant Schneider.  Thank you for taking the time to comment and let me know how the dish turns out when you get a chance to make it.

I think it was a hit, Nina Hollander.  It made particularly good sandwiches the next day.  Thank you for stopping by.

Good morning, Joan Cox.   Food and cooking are two things I really enjoy.  The food is always better with lots of company, though.  I imagine, that is what I really enjoy, having family and friends around enjoying themselves.  I think the meal was pretty good, thank you!
