EMEALS Review: Chicken Piccata with Texas Caviar
This EMEALS dish was quite tasty, and unbelievably, the leftovers the next day were even better. The two adult dinner guests (both former vegetarians) actually loved it, as well as the family.
The chicken breasts were coated in cornstarch up front….typically I would have browned the meat first and added the thickener at the end. I think this prevented the meat from getting a nice brown crust.
The butter, olive oil, broth, lemon juice, parsley and capers gave it a pretty good flavor, but I felt there was a little something missing so added some white wine which did the trick.
The Texas Caviar was very tasty, except the 1 Tbsp. of hot sauce (Tabasco) was a little too much for me and the kiddo. Everyone else loved the spicy-ness. Ingredients were very interesting….Cilantro, red wine vinegar, olive oil, hot sauce, garlic, black eyed peas, red onion, tomato, bell pepper.
Picture shows the Piccata topped with a small amount of the Texas Caviar which toned down the heat for me. Overall, Thumbs up from me, our guests, and the fam !
