We all get in a side dish slump sometimes – same sides, different main dish. 

I have you covered today with 12 of my favorite sides that whip up in a snap and go perfectly with Chicken Piccata. 



Chicken Piccata is a classic dish, simple recipe and one of my all time favorites.

Chicken cutlets dredged in flour, browned then simmered in a delicious lemony sauce with capers and artichokes.

With little effort, it comes together in under 30 minutes with basic ingredients from the grocery store.

It’s ideal for weeknights but with enough wow factor for date night or next dinner party.


My go-to wine for Chicken Piccata is the one I enjoy drinking with my meal, Sauvignon Blanc.

It’s light, citrusy and goes really well with the bright lemon flavor in this dish.

I also like Pinot Grigio or Pinot Gris also dry white wines. Just be sure to avoid sweet wine, such as Moscato.


  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 5 tablespoons flour divided
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 to 1/2 lemon juiced (to taste)
  • 3 tablespoons capers, drained
  • 6 ounces marinated artichoke hearts drained
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped


Add 3 tablespoons of the flour to a shallow dish or plate.

Slice the chicken breasts horizontally to create thin cutlets (you can also pound the chicken until thin and even).

Season the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper then dredge in flour. Heat the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat.

Add the chicken without overcrowding and sear 3-4 minutes per side to a beautiful golden color, then remove to a plate (chicken won’t be cooked through at this point).
