    Hmmm...believe it or not, they're not up on any of my blogs!

    It's all in my head. No real measurements. But both of these are super simple and quick.

    Take some boneless, skinless chicken breasts and pound sorta thin. Season about 1/2 cup of flour (or more depending on how much chicken) with salt and pepper and put in plastic bag. Put the chicken in the bag and be sure the chicken gets all coated with the flour.

    Meanwhile, in a large skillet, add 1 part butter to 1 part olive oil. (The olive oil helps the butter to not burn.) Heat over medium to medium-high heat. When the butter is melted, toss in the chicken and cook, turning once, until cooked through. Try not to break the flour coating on the chicken. Remove the chicken to a platter and keep warm.

    Turn the pan to high and when it gets really hot, toss in some dry white wine (1/2 cup to 1 cup -- depends on how much chicken you're cooking). You can use the non-alc cooking wine from the grocery if you want. You want the pan really hot when you do this, as the wine will deglaze the pan and get all the bits off the bottom.

    Turn the pan down to low and add some capers and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Add a little, and then taste. Just keep adding until it's how you like it.

    Keep stirring over low until the sauce thickens a bit. (It will thicken naturally from the flour from the chicken.) Add the chicken back to the pan, turn to coat and that's it! If the kids don't like the capers, just leave them out.

    For the Chicken Marsala, same as above except use Marsala wine instead of the white wine (non-alc Marsala is fine), omit the capers and lemon juice, and add sliced mushrooms when you would have added the capers.

    They still ask for these dishes, as do their friends when they're eating over here!

    I tend to use the grocery store-bought non-alc stuff when making this for the kids, and the real thing when cooking for adults.

      No. I've never seen olives in either Piccata or Marsala. There is a dish from the Liguria are in Italy that has a dish that's chicken, plum tomatoes, olives, white wine, rosemary and garlic. Does that sound like it?

        yes and no, it had green peppers, I think feta cheese or some kind of cheese. it did have garlic and white wine, I don't think it had tomatoes, but it did have a real strong flavorful taste of the green olives mixed with the wine....making my own mouth

      Jane, it's soooooo utterly simple, it's pathetic. And one pan to boot! WOOT!  It shouldn't take you more than 15 minutes from start to finish.

      You can substitute bone-in chicken. It has a better flavor, but it's trickier trying not to let the butter burn.
