Country Chicken Piccata (My Philip's Favorite)

Deneece Gursky


My husband Philip loved this dish. The pic here is prior to adding the green onions mix, Mom doesnt like them so I served her first. My daughter took the pic.

The chicken is so tender and the onions and lemon give it a unique and delish flavor.
