Delicious Tasty Brandy Chicken Piccata

A classic dish with a twist, brandy.  I should follow my own rule of always having all the ingredients on hands, and tonight somehow we did not have any white wine at the house. Plenty of red, that for sure, but white, not a bottle in sight. I had to come up with something on the spot, therefore, I decided to use brandy instead of white wine. It was delicious!

The brandy with chicken broth, garlic, capers, and lemon juice was just out of this world. A richer texture and the last piece of butter made it all bind well together.  I love it better than the original classic and look forward to preparing it again.

Ingredients

8 chicken tights, skin on
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup brandy
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/4 cup sodium-free chicken stock
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon capers, drained
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
fresh lemon slices
salt
pepper

Preparation

1 Season the chicken tights with salt and pepper. In a large skillet over medium-high heat add the 1 olive oil and 2 tablespoons butter.
2 Sauté the chicken tights skin down for 5 – 6 minutes on one side if the skin feels some resistant cook it a bit longer. Turn them over and sauté the other side until nicely browned, and no juices are running, 5 to 6 minutes.
3 Add the brandy and chicken broth to the pan and bring it to a boil. Add minced garlic. Cook until garlic is slightly brown and liquid half evaporated about 2 minutes
4 Add lemon juice, parsley, and capers and continue cooking for another 3 to 5 minutes.
5 Finish the sauce with butter and lemons slices. Once butter melts and sauce are starting to get a bit thick, it is ready to serve.
6 Garnish with chopped fresh parsley and serve.
