Method To Prepare Chicken Piccata Cheesecake Factory?
Step 1 – Start by pounding the chicken breast pieces until thin. Sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper on both sides of the meat. Rub the seasoning in well.
Step 2– Heat a pan under medium heat. Shallow fry the chicken pieces one by one, until crispy and a beautiful golden brown on both sides.
Step 3 – Now put aside the chicken – add in sliced mushrooms, butter, and sprinkle in some salt to the pan.
Step 4 – Once the mushrooms have cooked down, take them out and add in the chicken broth. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon and add a dash of butter into the mix. Add in the heavy cream and capers. Mix well, until the creamy sauce begins to thicken.
Step 5 – Add in the cooked chicken pieces as well as the mushrooms back to the sauce mixture. Sprinkle in some chopped herbs like coriander or parsley.
Step 6 – Plate a serving of the pasta and pour over the savory and creamy sauce. Shred some cheese if so desired, and your chicken piccata cheesecake factory is ready to be served!
