A few short months ago we were covered with snow, and now it is HOT! The gkids aren't bothered by the heat, they spend most of the day in the water! This is the Peconic Bay, a beautiful private beach by our home. There were some jelly fish, so we keep the bottle of vinegar on hand. Nothing is perfect!
This is the ocean, we were there last Sunday. A lot rougher, and watch those rip tides. The Bay is a lot calmer!
I hope your Fourth of July holiday was a good one!
When I did my Lemon Yellow table, I thought I would carry through with a Lemon chicken for dinner.
I buy the boneless breasts , (cheaper :) ) and slice them thin myself. Pound them thinner, and season.
Dredge in seasoned flour, and brown in a small amount of evoo, or a mixture of butter and margarine. Remove from the pan and keep warm.
Slice some scallions thinly and saute in the same pan. Deglaze the pan with some dry white wine and fresh lemon juice. Add some chicken broth, or use chicken base, Tone's or McCormick, mixed in some water. Grind in some pepper. Simmer.
Return the chicken to the pan, and add some fresh parsley and heat through. The sauce should not be watery, so if it is, thicken it a bit.
Right before serving , swirl some cream or half and half into the pan.
I served it with linguine tossed in olive oil and cooked and seasoned spinach with some freshly grated locatelli cheese.
Some people add capers to their piccata, but I find them too salty.
Hope you have a great weekend . Stay cool and enjoy!
As always, I appreciate your visit!
