I have to say that this was not a hit with the boy.
He is so used to certain things with his food, that sometimes it’s difficult to get him to think “outside the box”.
He definitely prefers the original way his Momma makes picatta to this.
He said it was dry.
The chicken was moist and it was covered with sauce, dude!
How could it be dry?
No one else at the table thought it was dry and his sister looked at him like he had two heads.
He was just looking for an excuse to not like it.
That’s ok. I much prefer the other way I make it, too.
Not that this was bad, the family just opts to have it made on top of the stove as opposed to in it.
I rate everything I bake on a scale of 1-4 with 4 being the best and this Baked Chicken Picatta earned 2 rolling pins. The taste of the lemon was good mixed with the capers, but we didn’t like the addition of the white wine. I use a few tablespoons of water in my other sauce and more lemon juice.
Don’t worry, only 117 days until I can share that recipe with you.
Nothing like keeping you in suspense, hunh?
I hope your day was wonderful!
I give you BIG baking hugs and muffins!!
