Friday #LemonWeek Recipes

  • Today’s Recipe: Grilled Chicken Piccata

    My recipe today is a take on the classic Italian chicken recipe. However, this chicken is cooked outdoors for the extra grill flavor and slight smokiness. I served this with the asparagus I made on Monday.

    Other good sides are rice pilaf. Or a simple garlic pasta made with vermicelli or angel-hair.

    Serving this on grilled French bread for sandwiches is another possible option. In any case, everyone will enjoy this with the usual cookout sides. Of course, including tossed salad.
