Piccata refers to a preparation of food, particularly meat or fish, where the food is sliced, sautéed, and served in a sauce containing lemon juice, butter, and capers. What wine goes with Chicken Piccata? A Chardonnay has hints of butter and citrus that pair amazingly well with this Chicken Piccata. Sauvignon Blanc has bright citrus and herbal notes that pair nicely with the lemon and parsley found in this dish.

What’s the difference between Chicken Piccata and Francese?
They both can be made with chicken, veal or fish and both consist of a lemon butter sauce. The difference is that while Francaise dips the meat into flour and an egg wash before pan frying; Piccata only dips the meat into flour and also adds capers to it’s lemon butter sauce.
