Beanie's Recipes: Chicken Piccata

In my novel, Blueberry Truth, the main character Beanie likes to cook occasionally. She makes, among other things, chicken piccata.

Here's an easy recipe:

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 T Parmesan cheese
1/3 c flour
2 T milk
1 egg
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1t salt
1/2 t pepper
1 t Italian seasoning
Olive oil
1/2 c chicken stock
1/4 c lemon juice
1/4 cup capers
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley

How to make it:
1. Cut chicken breasts in half lengthwise. Pound to 1/4 inch thickness
2. Beat egg and milk together in bowl
3. In a separate bowl, mix cheese, breadcrumbs, salt,  pepper, and Italian seasoning.
4. dredge breasts in flour, then dip into egg mixture, then coat with breadcrumbs
5. Pour enough olive oil to coat bottom of a large skillet. Heat oil.
6. Cook breasts in oil until done (3-5 minutes per side)
7. remove breasts from pan and cover with foil to keep warm
8. add stock, lemon juice and capers to the pan. Heat to boil, scraping pan drippings. Lower heat and cook until reduced by half.
9. pour sauce over chicken and sprinkle with parsley.
10. enjoy!
