The chicken piccata at Ray’s at Killer Creek is a delicious version of a restaurant classic you just don’t see much anymore. Will they share the recipe? — Michelle Jarvis, Alpharetta
Thomas Mikesell, former chef at Ray’s at Killer Creek, was happy to share this recipe, which appears on the “regional specialties” portion of the restaurant’s menu. He wrote, “When I was a young high school student living in southwest Michigan, I worked at Tosi’s in Stevensville, a true Italian restaurant. Tosi’s made their pasta fresh daily, along with all the sauces and breads. In my mind, this was fine dining at its best. I always worked the saute station and would prepare every order of chicken and veal piccata. The recipes from which the culinary staff worked were handed down from generation to generation. I took a part of what I learned there and added a little of my past to create this version of what I thought the dish should be. Now it’s a part of Ray’s Restaurants.”
At Ray’s, this recipe serves two, but we found it made four very satisfying servings.
Ray’s at Killer Creek’s Chicken Piccata
You only need half of this recipe for the Chicken Piccata. Mikesell suggests keeping the extra garlic butter on hand to saute vegetables or seafood, or to baste a steak.
