Chicken Piccata


I have to say this is probably one of the easiest recipes ever. My mom made this when she was last in town as a test for when she comes back when we have the baby (1 more month to go eek). It literally took less then 15 minutes to come together and tasted really good and you don’t even notice it’s made without the white wine. We only made it with 4 pre-pounded chicken breast and that was barely enough sauce so I would double or triple it if you are making it for more then 4 servings. Next time we may add some mushrooms to it too, which would be yummy.

  1. I'd have to triple it then, cause the hubby likes to put sauce over rice!
