Sicilian Chicken Piccata

The rich flavor of boneless thighs melds beautifully with the sweet-tartness of blood oranges or red grapefruit. It’s a breeze to substitute boneless breasts—either pound them to an even thickness or slice them horizontally into cutlets.

Prep Time 
Cook Time 
Total Time 


5 to 8 (20 ounces) Just BARE® Hand-Trimmed Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/3 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
2 blood oranges or small red grapefruit
2 tablespoons small capers, drained
Finely chopped fresh parsley


Place chicken thighs flat between two pieces of waxed paper or parchment. Lightly pound with a rolling pin or side of a meat mallet until they are evenly thick (about 1/2-inch). Season with salt and pepper; dredge in flour.

Heat butter and oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of chicken to pan; cook, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes, turning once, until no longer pink in center. Remove from pan to plate; add remaining oil to pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, remaining chicken; remove to plate.

Add wine to pan; bring to a boil and scrape up the browned bits. Cook 1 minute; stir in broth. Bring to a boil; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until reduced to about 2 tablespoons. Meanwhile, juice one orange (so you have about 1/3 cup juice) and thinly slice the second one, cutting each slice in half.

Stir juice into pan with the citrus slices. Simmer 2 minutes. Return chicken to pan and sprinkle with capers and parsley.
