Chicken Piccata and The Prom

After much anticipation (and a month long weather delay), Prom finally arrived this past weekend.  Nails were done, hair appointments completed, shoes and dresses ready to go...the Golden Globes theme Prom was set and in full motion.

Even a little chill in the air and overcast skies didn't stop these girls from bringing their finest glamour to the evening!  My babies are all grown up...brings a tear (actually several as of late) to my eyes.

We enjoyed our own little date night with my husband's favorite Chicken Piccata.

** Recipe is so good and easy, you will want to double this!!

4 chicken cutlets
2 Tbl. canola oil
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 tsp. garlic, minced
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 Tbl. fresh lemon juice
1 Tbl. capers, drained
2 Tbl. butter
fresh lemon slices

Season cutlets with salt and pepper then dust with flour.  Spray saute pan with nonstick spray, add vegetable oil, and heat over medium-high.

Saute cutlets 2-3 minutes on on side.  Flip the cutlets over and saute the other side 1-2 minutes with the pan covered.  Transfer cutlets to a warm plate; pour off fat from the pan.

Deglaze pan with wine and add minced garlic.  Cook until garlic is slightly brown and liquid is nearly gone, about 2 minutes.

Add broth, lemon juice, and capers.  Return cutlets to pan and cook on each side 1 minutes.  Transfer cutlets to a warm plate.

Finish with butter and lemon slices.  Once butter melts, pour sauce over cutlets.

...and speaking of chicken, I was fortunate enough to have Buffalo Wild Wings  and Texas Roadhouse donate 350 wings for the After Prom party at school.  Everyone knows how hungry teenagers are at we helped make the special delivery!
