You can make about 4 servings with 1 portion of inexpensive chicken breast. Pound the chicken to tenderize, then marinate in sauce. Coating with beaten egg makes the chicken very moist. It's still tender even when it's cooled.
Cut the chicken breast in half lengthwise, and slice diagonally into pieces. Pound with a rolling pin and make it thinner. This helps the chicken become tender.
Add the ☆ ingredients into a plastic bag and rub everything together to mix. Add the chicken breast from Step 1, and marinate for at least 1 hour in the fridge.
Combine the ★ ingredients in a bowl. Add in the marinated chicken, and mix in the beaten egg.
Heat up a frying pan. Swirl on some mayonnaise instead of oil to grease the pan, and fry the chicken breast from Step 3.
Story Behind this Recipe
I made piccata out of inexpensive chicken breast to turn it into a moist and delicious dish.
Since you tenderize the chicken and make it thinner, it doesn't take long to cook (It takes about 2 minutes on each side). If you marinate it the night before, it'll come in handy if you want to prepare it as a bento side dish the next morning. It's also tasty to sprinkle with grated cheese at the end and cook for 1 minute with a lid on. Sandwiches made with this chicken are also delicious.
