What to serve with chicken piccata
Chicken piccata is the ultimate Italian comfort classic featuring a lemony white wine butter sauce drizzled on a crispy breaded chicken cutlet over a bed of pasta. Most nights I cook dinner but like most of us, sometimes life gets in the way! You have to order in or get take out. My go-to dish under these circumstances would be chicken piccata. Frankly, I prefer the homemade version over any alternative as you can choose the wine you like for the sauce and have a glass or two while cooking!
