There are few flavor combinations that can beat lemon and capers. At its best, chicken Piccata is tangy, salty, and has a fresh hit of brightness that only fresh lemon juice can provide. With flavor this party-ready, imagine our excitement when we figured out a way to make classic chicken piccata in the slow cooker. The secret is browning the chicken breasts in a skillet before adding to the slow cooker. We dredge the chicken in seasoned flour before browning in two tablespoons of butter. Cook the chicken in batches to ensure the skin achieves the perfect level of crispness. The chicken will cook on LOW for about 4 hours in a combination of broth, wine, capers, and lemon juice. Once the chicken is cooked through, transfer to a platter and cook the remaining liquid in a medium saucepan. A slurry of cold water and cornstarch will help thicken the sauce. Once it’s ready, spoon the sauce over the chicken and top with lemon wedges.
Serves 6 (serving size: 1 chicken breast, about 1/2 cup sauce)
