2 servings (serving size: 2 cutlets and 3 tablespoons sauce)

Enjoy this lemony Italian veal favorite with simple steamed green beans and mashed sweet potatoes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. Combine water and egg white in another shallow dish, stirring with a whisk. Place breadcrumbs in a third shallow dish. Working with 1 cutlet at a time, dredge in flour mixture. Dip floured cutlet in egg white mixture; dredge in breadcrumbs.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add cutlets to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Remove from pan; keep warm.

Step 3

Add broth, rind, juice, and capers to pan; simmer 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour over cutlets; serve immediately. Garnish with lemon wedges, if desired.

We thought this was pretty good. It definitely was a quick easy meal to make, but I'd rather have my veal with tomato sauce, so it wasn't one of my favorite recipes. I served it with the green beans and mashed potatoes.

Delicious. Tried this as written, served over capellini with a side of green beans, and loved it. My husband, who doesn't love veal as much as other proteins, raved about it. Definitely a favorite! The video, while unnecessary, is a nice double-check for a beginner such as myself!

Just made this tonight and it was great. I little time consuming and messy, but worth it. I also had to add a little bit more oil to the pan so the veal would brown. I served it with the soft polenta recipe from CL.

This was my first time serving veal to my family and this was a hit with everyone. The crust was perfect and the sauce was just as good. I will absolutely make this again and serve to dinner guests. My fiancé loved it and bragged to all his co-workers about what an excellent cook I am.

This is one of my favorites, and in my collection of weeknight dinners. I serve it exactly as pictured, with mashed sweet potatoes and green beans. SO quick and easy, and so delicious!

Made this piccata pretty much as set out in the recipe. Cheated a little and added a tablespoon of butter to the sauce. I thought it was a little heavy on the breading. I usually just use flouring for the veal. My husband loved it. We thought the sauce better than the usual heavier thicken sauces.

This might be good if it weren't made of veal. I don't like the flavor of suffering.
