But, the way they season it at Mr. Falafel, you would never know.

Well, the polenta didn't happen because there was only enough left in the box for about a single serving. So we had Cajun spiced catfish with tartar, wilted spinach, oven roasted potatoes, and homemade sourdough. Oh, and the wine is homemade Chardonnay.

Can you tell me how you do your chicken piccada? Mine is always just short of the mark.

Tonight is clean out fride here.
Thanks!
Pound, lightly salt and dredge chicken breast.
Brown in olive oil on both sides(approx 2 minutes per side)
Remove and set aside.
Add about 2 tblsp butter
When foamy add 1/2 cup chicken stock, reduce by half
Add 1/4 cup dry white wine(optional) keep it bubbling
Add juice of half lemon, 1/4 cup of well rinsed capers
Return chicken pieces to pan and let it bubble away(med hi)
Until reduced to gravy like consisency. Add fresh parsley and black pepper. Quick check to see if you need salt. Serve and spoon sauce and capers over top. Easy Peasey

This is the second time I've heard about rinsing the capers.
I'm betting that's how I've been slightly missing the mark with such a beautifully simple dish. Once again, it pays to ask questions, and now I know what's for dinner tonight. Much appreciated.
