  1. Inside big heavy-bottomed skillet, heat 2 tbsp of olive oil on medium-high heat for 2 minutes or continue till hot. Simmer half of the batch inside the skillet without removing it for about 2 ½ or till brown. Turn to the other side and repeat the same but now for about 2 to 2 ½ minutes more. Put into the plate and cover it with aluminum foil or simply keep it warm inside the oven. Now put the 2 tbsp of oil that remains in skillet and heat till shimmering. Repeat same with the reaming chicken pieces. Transfer the formal batch and keep them warm in 2000


  1. With the same pan, you used to cook the chicken, sauté your shallot in oil as well as the brown bit that remains in the pan. Put in chicken broth as well as lemon slices when the shallot turns translucent, let it cook till the lemon slices are completely softened.


  1. Put in the lemon juice and capers, allow it to reduce and concentrate flavors. Bring the pan out of the heat and stir in butter till thaws and turns into a thick sauce. Now put in parsley, spoon your awesome chicken piccata over and serve right away with pasta.
