Chicken Piccata
This is a wonderful chicken recipe quick and easy to prepare and it tastes gorgeous. It has just the right amount of lemon added and is a really enjoyable meal. I served ours over couscous with asparagus as there was some in the store the other day, they looked so good and were reasonably priced which makes a change.
