Piccata is a surefire pick me up when it’s cold outside. Wrap your hands around a warm brioche bun that you’ve pan toasted to perfection, and sink your teeth into juicy, flour-dredged chicken with a butter-browned exterior. The characteristic mix of sunny lemon and briny capers, riding with a roasted garlic aioli and sweet quick-pickled shallot, has everything you need to wake up the taste buds from their winter slumber.

Mise en place
Finely chop the parsley leaves and stems. Roughly chop the capers. Peel and halve the shallot; mince ½ and thinly slice the other ½. Roughly chop the roasted garlic. Zest and halve the lemon; juice ½ and quarter the other ½. In a small bowl, pickle the shallot by combining the sliced shallot and ½ the rice vinegar.

Cook the chicken
In a medium pan (non-stick, if possible), heat a thin layer of olive oil on medium-high. Place the flour on a plate. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with S&P, ⅔ of the spice blend and ⅔ of the lemon zest. Thoroughly coat the seasoned chicken in the flour (tapping off any excess). Add the coated chicken thighs* to the pan; cook, 5 to 7 min., on the first side (7 to 9 min. for chicken breasts; 3 to 4 min. for chicken fillets), until golden brown. Flip the chicken; add 1 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions); cook, 3 to 5 min. (5 to 7 min. for breasts; 1 to 2 min. for fillets), until cooked through. Transfer the cooked chicken to a plate and set aside in a warm spot. Wipe out and reserve the pan.

Make the aioli & toast the buns
While the chicken cooks, in a medium bowl, make the aioli by combining the mayonnaise, capers, remaining lemon zest, roasted garlic and ½ the parsley; stir until combined. Season with S&P to taste. Heat the reserved pan on medium-high. Add the buns to the pan, cut-sides down, and toast, 1 to 2 minutes, until golden brown.

Make the salad
In a large bowl, combine the remaining rice vinegar, remaining spice blend and as much lemon juice and minced shallot as you’d like; add 3 tbsp olive oil (double for 4 portions) and season with S&P to taste, stirring well to combine. To the same bowl, add the baby greens and remaining parsley; toss well to combine.

Assemble the buns & serve
Spread the cut sides of the toasted buns with the aioli. Divide the bun bottoms between your plates. Top each bun bottom with the chicken, a squeeze of lemon juice if desired, a spoonful of salad, as much pickled shallot as you'd like and a bun top. Halve the finished buns before serving if desired. Serve the salad and any remaining pickled shallot and lemon wedges on the side. Bon appétit!
