Ideal Meals

This is our first "Ideal Meal". We will switch off between having delicious meals that you can make for dinner or different ways you can prepare your food. This is Carly's absolute favorite meal and we were kind of rushed since school's tomorrow so we decided to put up a recipe. 

Chicken Piccata (or as she calls it...Lemon Chicken)

*1 lb of chicken breast sliced thin
*2-4 cloves minced garlic
*1 large shallot minced fine
*1 cup of chicken broth
*1/4 cup of white wine
*juice of 1 lemon
*basil, oregano & pepper to taste
*1-2 tsp. of olive oil
*1 tbsp. of capers (optional)

Dust chicken with flour. Heat 1 tsp. oil on the oven on high and lightly brown chicken. Remove and set aside. Lower heat to medium. Add remaining oil. Saute garlic and shallots. Add seasonings and chicken. Turn up to high and add wine. Boil off alcohol. Add broth and lemon juice. Reduce until thickened. Add capers (optional). Serve.
