Easy Chicken Piccata

Chicken Piccata

Hot enough for you?  It's so hot that I don't even feel like grilling so tonight in the nicely air conditioned house I made this quick and easy chicken dish from the Spring Kraft Food and Family magazine .

The chicken is spread with some Olive Oil Mayo and then pressed in finely crushed Ritz crackers... I was a little skeptical but the end result was really good!








The chicken cooks in olive oil until browned and cooked through



Lemon juice, chicken broth and butter makes up the yummy sauce




When everything is all done, spoon sauce over chicken and sprinkle with fresh parsley



Dinner is served and Mr. John gave it 4.5 stars!
