The last real meal...made by me

at least for a while, I think. I was more motivated to cook b/c Jody said to take a picture & give her the recipe so how could I disappoint the girl who always fulfills my requests? I couldn't.

So just like 'The Pioneer Woman Cooks' here is a shot of all the ingredients you need. In the bag on the right is the albino chicken tenders tossed in flour.
You cannot make this recipe if you do not own a mini strainer for the capers. (Maybe for my next post I will share all the necessary mini things you should have:)
The work in progress...
and walah! You have a dinner that 2 out of 4 girls (under the age of 7) enjoyed.

Chicken Piccata with Capers
1 1/2 pounds of chicken tenders
1/2 C flour
2-3 tsp Lawrys garlic salt
1 tsp pepper
2 T oil
1/2 stick of butter
1 C white wine
1 C of chicken broth
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 C of capers
Shake chicken in bag w/flour mixture

In skillet over med high heat, melt butter & oil & brown chicken on both sides until browned (about 4 min. each) Remove chicken to platter.

Leave frying juices in the pan, add the cooking wine, lemon juice, broth, 2 Tbs butter & bring to a boil

Place chicken back in pan to simmer for 10 to 15 min covered. Add the capers the last 2 min.

This recipe came from The Food Nanny Rescues Dinner.

Since this is the one and only recipe I've posted I expect all two of you to make this & give me your review.

Okay, that was fun! I think you should consider doing a food blog-you're a natural!

I could never be as cool as you and the Pioneer girl and do all that cool step by step photo thing. But, maybe if you wanted to sell me your camera for, let's say...fifty bucks, I might step up in class! ;) I know it's worth way more than that, but a girls gotta dream big, especially in this economy!

No way...too much pressure and you have to be more patient with typing out ingredients & directions. I'd rather enjoy you doing all the work!

Hey Zana, your next post should be my favorite meal ala Zana:

step One: open lid of Hummus.
step two: dip pita chip

enjoy. And maybe finish with a mini chocolate chip cookie!

So sorry my stuff is annoyingly hanging out at your house as extra clutter. Have you had your baby yet? Is there even playgroup anymore? I have your baby boy present just annoyingly sitting at my house ;) so maybe we should trade sometime soon.
