Chicken Piccata - Recipe

Earlier this week I tried a new recipe for dinner, I was feeling kinda daring.
The recipe was on the back of an Italian bread crumb container and it sounded really good.
I have to say it was quite easy to make and really tasty.
Not a heavy sauce at all due to the lemon juice and it was perfect for a warm spring day.
The kiddos enjoyed the chicken with no complaints, which as you know is always a great sign.
