Chicken Piccata
This is my Mom’s recipes and one of the few dishes I ate as a kid. It is fast, easy, lemony and delish.

1½ lb. chicken cutlets, pounded thin
1 cup flour
salt and pepper
1 TB. vegetable or olive oil
½ cup white wine
¼ cup lemon juice
2 TB. butter

Season flour with salt and pepper and mix. Dip chicken cutlets, on both sides, into flour and shake excess off. Heat oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. When hot, but not smoking, add chicken cutlets and saute for about 3 minutes per side (you may need to do these a few at a time so you don’t crowd the pan). Remove chicken from the pan and put them in a warm oven to rest and stay warm.

Add white wine and lemon juice to the pan and stir, picking up the nice brown bits from the chicken. Heat the liquids until they boil and turn syrupy. Turn off the heat and stir in the butter. Pour sauce over the chicken.

Nothing fancy, just old-fashioned egg noodles that remind you of being a kid. They are nice for soaking up the juices of the piccata.

Boil salted water and follow directions on the bag.
