Chicken Piccata with Lemon Sauce

 Chicken Piccata with Lemon Sauce
Once you've tried Susan Pursell's tangy yet delicate entree, you won't hesitate to make it for company. Seasoned with Parmesan and parsley, the chicken cooks up golden brown, then is drizzled with a light lemon sauce. Susan sent the recipe from her home in Fountain City, California.
