Veal Piccata

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


  • 1/3 cup dry vermouth
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Butter-flavored cooking spray
  • 1/2 pound (1/4-inch-thick) veal cutlets
  • 6 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
