Chicken Piccata with Roasted Vegetables – Quick and Easy – 30 Minutes – Gluten Free

Chicken Piccata

Chicken Piccata is an easy dish to prepare and it’s delicious! It’s one of those meals that we don’t order in a restaurant because we can make it better at home and so can you!!

Today’s tip……When you chop up onions or garlic chop up a good bit more than you need and put the extras into zip-lic bags. Store them in the freezer to make your future quick and easy meals even quicker and easier.

Back to your Chicken Piccata 

Set the oven at 400°F. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and cut up whatever veggies that you want to have in the mix. Potatoes, onions and peppers are the basics but after that just go with whatever strikes your fancy. As you can see we also had on hand some brussels sprouts, carrots and zucchini. Put the veggies onto the cookie sheet and generously drizzle with the extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder and dried basil. Mix it all together by hand and spread it out. Into the oven for about 15 – 20 minutes.

Poke a potato with a table fork to check if they are done. When the potato is as soft as you want it everything else is done too. If the veggies are done  before the Chicken Piccata is just turn off the oven and they will stay warm for you.

Put a skillet on at medium high and add some olive oil and half of the butter. Mix the flour, salt and pepper in a shallow dish and dredge the chicken filets in the flour mix and put them in the skillet. About 3 -5 minutes each side depending on how thick they are. When they are firm or read 165°F  on an instant read meat thermometer remove them to a dish that will catch the drippings. Add the rest of the butter, chopped garlic, capers, parsley flakes, lemon slices and parmesan cheese to the skillet. Stir it up with a wooden spoon getting the bits off the bottom of the pan.
