chicken piccata

Have you ever heard of engagement chicken? It's really just a roast chicken - but it acquired the nickname when a few women reported that after making it for their boyfriends, they were soon asked to be married.

Sound strange?

I believe it. The way to a man's heart, after all, is through his stomach.

Some believe that the reason the roasted chicken prompted the men to propose was more because of the presentation of the dish. You know, it looks fancy sitting there on the table - almost like a turkey on Thanksgiving. Light some candles, throw on a cute little apron and stilettos, and now you're looking like a wife.  A damned good one. Sure, the chicken tastes good, but it may have been this wifey-like picture you just created that tricked caused your boyfriend to want to take the plunge.

Hey, if that's the case - nice work!

I just happen to think this chicken piccata recipe can give that engagement chicken a run for its' money. Because this one has a whole lot of taste going on, in addition to any of that ambiance you want to throw in. I've never met a man {or a woman, for that matter} that didn't like chicken piccata - or some combination of lemon, chicken, and pasta. This one is the best I've ever made; a touch of heavy cream thickens the sauce, in turn making it richer and more luxurious than any standard version.
