Yield
4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces veal, 1 tablespoon sauce, 3/4 teaspoon parsley, and 3/4 teaspoon capers)

Prep: 10 minutes; Cook: 10 minutes

Cooking the veal in batches ensures that the meat browns nicely. Chicken or pork cutlets may be substituted for veal.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. Dredge veal in flour mixture, shaking off excess.

Step 2

Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of veal, and cook 1 minute on each side or until lightly browned. Remove veal from pan, and keep warm. Repeat procedure with remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil and remaining veal.

Step 3

Add chicken broth and lemon juice to pan; cook 4 minutes or until liquid is reduced to about 1/4 cup, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Whisk in butter and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; remove from heat. Spoon sauce over veal; sprinkle with parsley and capers.

Step 4

Tart lemon juice, briny capers, and fresh parsley complement veal's delicate flavor in veal piccata (pih-KAH-tuh), a popular Italian dish.
