Lemon Piccata Chicken Fingers Recipe

When it comes to dinner recipes, there are two things I love: quick and easy. This Lemon Piccata chicken fingers recipe falls under both, making it an under 30 meal that makes mom and family both happy. Personally I have a thing for capers and lemon.

I feel like they make pasta, chicken and even steak worth eating. For the life of me I cant figure out why my husbands hate those little balls of deliciousness, but when mixed in a perfect creamy piccata sauce, he doesn’t even notice.

Its doused in the perfect balance of lemon and topped with fresh herbs or a veggie of your choice (I say asparagus or spinach works perfect for this) making it a restaurant quality meal without the hassle of leaving your house.

Btw, if you love lemon, this Lemon Butter Chicken Strip recipe may be up your alley as well.
