Veal Piccata

You can substitute pork medallions or boneless chicken breasts for the veal cutlets, though you may have to cook them a little longer. Be sure to flatten or pound both pork and chicken to about 1/4-inch thickness. Pounding makes the meat more tender and helps it to cook quickly.


2 servings (serving size: 3 ounces meat and about 3 tablespoons sauce)
