Chicken Piccata Done Light, with Lightly Fried Broccoli and Fennel step by step
- Heat a very large saucepan worth the tablespoon of oil, and heat on medium high..
- When up to temp, add the broccoli and fennel, carefully sprinkling and mixing in the salt, garlic powder, and pepper. The florets trap the seasonings, so you really can't be dumping the spices in, or certain florets will have all the spices..
- Stir in the spices, and let simmer a bit. You want to brown the veggies a little, and then stir and repeat..
- Slice the breasts down the middle, and then, using parallel cuts, cut three layers out of each half..
- In a separate bowl add the breasts, eggs, and chicken seasonings and zest, stir, and let marinate until all egg is incorporated..
- When the veggies are browned to your taste, and still a little crisp, remove the veggies from the pan, and warm on a dish in the oven at about 170°F..
- Add the additional oil to the former veggie pan and sear the marinated chicken on both sides until both sides have a nice egg-induced mottled brown-gold color, which should pretty much cook it through. Remove to a separate serving plate, and keep warm..
- Reduce heat to low, wait a moment, and when down to temp, toss in the garlic..
- When the garlic is in there a minute or so, deglaze with the wine, and stand back, then stir..
- Let the wine cook off for a couple minutes, and then add the chicken broth and lemon juice..
- Reduce the mixture to desired consistency, and add salt to taste..
- Plate 2 pieces of chicken next to the veggies, and spoon some broth over the top of the chicken..
- Garnish with parsley, capers, and lemon slices, if you like, and serve immediately. Thin strips of chicken will dry quickly..
- I would pack leftover chicken, if any, in the broth to keep it moist..
