Chicken Picata

I made my own version of Chicken Picata tonight, and boy was it good.

Now, if I can remember what I did...

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts - not too thick. If you have 2 large chicken breasts, cut them in half lengthwise.

Season generously with Lemon Pepper seasoning.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet.

Cook chicken about 3 minutes per side until lightly browned.

Lower heat. Add 1/2 cup water and 1/4 cup lemon juice, and 1/4 cup capers (rinsed)

Let simmer while you prepare wide egg noodles per package directions.

Cut up 2 cups broccoli florets and throw into the pan with the chicken for the last few minutes until bright green and tender crisp.

Drain noodles.

Portion the noodles on to 4 plates.

Top with chicken and broccoli.

Spoon pan juices over the chicken. Make sure to get some capers on each plate.

Eat up!

Sorry its not fancier. I wanted to get it written down before I forgot what I did!
