Chicken Picatta is one of my favorite dishes, which is why I decided to make it myself. I started with this recipe: http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/chicken_piccata/
Of course, I'm me, so I only use recipes as a jumping board, in the best of times. Here are the ingredients:
|Except the Mio. That had nothing to do with it.|
Okay, these were most of the ingredients. Until I got all indignant about the lack of garlic. There are some recipes that call for garlic, but this one didn't. As a lover of garlic, I decided to throw some in. And I nixed the Parmesan because my dad doesn't like it so much. You gotta play to type, kids.

So let's get the cooking started. I didn't even have any during-cooking wine. What was I thinking? If you replicate the process, make sure to add wine to yourself. Because, why not? After that, butterfly your chicken in half. This should yield 4-8 little cutlets. I had 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, so I got 6 thin cutlets.
