Chicken Piccata

Hello Dukaners! I made this for dinner tonight and just thought I’d share it. And on the note of sharing, I am more than open to sharing my recipes. Most of them are adaptations from other recipes that I reference in each of my posts but I do write them myself. So, please feel free to repost and share the recipes; however, I do ask that you link back to my blog in your post. Please and thank you 🙂
