Chicken Piccata is so great, isn't it? Easy-to-cook escalopes of chicken in a delicious coating that everyone can't wait to eat! Kids seem to really enjoy it as well - it's hard to go wrong with something that vaguely resembles a giant chicken nugget, right?
It's Italian-inspired, but Italians often use veal instead of chicken for this classic dish. However, chicken has probably taken over as the most popular incarnation of the recipe, so check out our fabulous and super-tasty piccata variations and make your favorite tonight!
