"Delicious! I added some freshly minced parsley for color and added a pat of butter for the saute. Will definitely make these again. Bet they would be good with a touch of capers!! May try that next time!"

"This one is a keeper! So delicious! I did have to use thin cut chicken since my store didn't have turkey cutlets, but I followed the rest of the recipe as written."

"Made this last night with chicken. Added a smidge more lemon than the recipe called for.

It was delicious."
