Almost every savory recipe I follow I think to myself, “I’m not going to include that” or “I’m going to add this” or “Next time, I would change this.” I’m sure a lot of you are the same and that’s part of the fun of cooking. However, I followed the chicken picatta recipe courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis exactly and I would not have changed one thing. This recipe is awesome. It was perfectly acidic and pan-frying chicken in some olive oil and butter is one of my favorite ways to cook chicken breast quickly and flavorfully. I made mashed potatoes instead of pasta to go with the chicken for no particular reason other than I was feeling like eating mashed potatoes. It paired very well.
