This Olive Garden Chicken Piccata copycat tastes as same as the original if not better.


  • 4 chicken breasts pounded to 1/4" thickness (2lbs)
  • 1 onion small
  • 10 sun-dried tomatoes cut into strips
  • 1 tbsp garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 lemon juiced (about 2 tbsp)
  • 1/4 cup capers rinsed
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • salt & pepper
  • 4 tbsp olive oil for frying


  • Season breasts with salt & pepper and cook over med-high heat in olive oil, on both sides until golden and cooked through (about 5-8 minutes on each side.) Remove chicken and set aside.
  • In the same skillet add in the onion, sun-dried tomatoes and garlic. Saut√© until lightly browned (1-2 min) and then whisk in the chicken broth, lemon juice, and capers, scraping up bits from the pan. Let the sauce simmer over med-low heat for 10-15 min to reduce in size by about half the amount.
  • When sauce has thickened, remove from the heat and whisk in the butter until it melts then add in the cream. Heat through back on the heat for about 30 seconds then remove completely from heat. Add in the chicken breasts to coat in sauce and serve.
  • Tip: Use 1-2 tbsp of the sun-dried tomato oil for some of the olive oil for extra flavor.
