Chicken Piccata

It's the last day of the month which typically for me means I've spent my monthly allotted budget for food and we are down to the bare minimum on fresh stuff. I've been wanting to try this recipe from Simply Recipes for a while but just haven't gotten around to it. Today as I was racking my brain for dinner ideas this came to mind and lucky for me it was all pantry ingredients (I skipped the fresh parsley). It was yummy and easy and I'm definitely making it again. I used chicken tenders instead of breasts which made it even faster and with Trader Joe's Rice Pilaf and frozen broccoli we had a quick and easy dinner that was amazing and no one would have known I have zero food in my fridge.

Thank you Elise!

Side Note: Spencer came home late last night and had to eat this reheated. He RAVED about it (he rarely raves about my cooking) we're definitely keeping this one.

Meg, I am not very familiar with capers. Did you include capers when you made it? Could you omit them?

I'm sure you could omit them but I really love their flavor. You can get them at any grocery store.

Sorry, I'm pretty sure you find them by olives, pickled onions, etc.
