Chicken Piccata is a classic.
Fresh lemon paired with white wine and capers makes a light and refreshing sauce that is perfect for this time of the year.
I love this recipe because it comes together so quickly and because my whole family loves it, 2 year sold- 40 years old, everyone around here is happy to eat it.
Try serving with some fresh asparagus and brown rice. Or double the ingredients for the sauce and serve over some pasta. Enjoy!
