Chicken Piccata

This is one of my favorite chicken recipes. The chicken comes out light, lemony, and juicy!

This was so good and I even forgot to dip it in the egg. It was really tasty - not too lemon flavored.

This dish is absolutely delicious. I licked my plate afterwards! I used a rice/almond/teff flour mixture and it worked great.

I also passed the recipe on to my mom and she loved it too. It's not too heavy, but you can definitely taste the lemon and butter.
