Chicken Piccata

So like I said in an earlier post I needed to go through my google recipes. This recipe I have been wanting to try for awhile I just never did. I have always thought this chicken recipe sounded good but most recipes were made with some type of wine. Since I don't drink wine I thought it pointless to buy a bottle to cook for just this recipe. I also am afraid if I ever did cook with wine I would blow my kitchen up somehow!I was so happy when I found this didn't require any wine. This chicken was extremly simple and I always have the ingredients on hand and of course it tasted wonderful!
I was so hungry I scarfed it down and forgot to take a picture!
I found the recipe from here.
Chicken Piccata
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 egg
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/4 cup butter
2 teaspoons chicken bouillon powder
1/2 cup boiling water
1. In a small bowl, beat the egg together with 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice. Set aside.
In a shallow bowl or dish mix together the flour, garlic powder and paprika. Dip the chicken in the egg/lemon mixture, then in the seasoned flour.
2. In a large skillet, melt butter/margarine and brown the coated chicken pieces.
3. Dissolve the bouillon in the boiling water, then add the remaining 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Pour liquid into skillet. Cover and let simmer for 20 minutes, turning chicken pieces after 10 minutes, until chicken is tender. Garnish as desired and serve.

Hey Ashley,
This is Amy from AU. I didn't know you had a recipe page but I'm excited to try some of these things! The chicken piccata sounds especially good, and the cheesy chicken roll ups!

And just so you know, wine won't light on fire. You have to have 80 proof or higher liquor to be able to light it on fire. Wine doesn't have an alcohol content that is that high. Also, you can buy cooking wine in small bottles at the grocery store, so you wouldn't be stuck with a huge bottle left over like you would otherwise.
