Turkey Piccata

Turkey Piccata

The delicious piccata sauce is a great way to serve with your turkey or chicken breasts for a lovely midweek dinner. As is the case with most of the delicious recipes, it takes just a handful of ingredients, the perfect combination to create flavors that complement and enhance each other nicely.


Yield: 2 servings

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes


  • 2 turkey breast (~100g. each) 
  • few tbsp. flour, to lightly coat the breasts in 
  • 1 tbsp. capers 
  • 1/2 cup vegetable stock or white wine
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice 
  • knob of butter 
  • handful of parsley 
  • one lemon sliced 
  • salt & black pepper to taste 
  • roasted vegetable to serve (optional)


  • To make this delicious meal in under half an hour, simply dredge the turkey breasts in flour, shaking the excess flour off. 
  • In a hot pan over a medium heat, melt the butter and add in the turkey breasts. 
  • Cook for roughly five minutes on each side (depending how thick the breast are) until they are white in the middle and lightly brown in the outside. 
  • Remove from the pan and add in the capers and the stock. Cook the sauce for about 5-7 minutes until it is reduced and slightly thickened, than add in the the meat, the lemon juice, the parsley and the lemon slices. 
  • Cook them for just a minute until they just get warm then serve over rice, mash potatoes, or I like them best with some roasted vegetables.
