Traditionally, a piccata consists of floured meat cutlets that are quickly sauteed and served with a simple sauce made from pan drippings and lemon juice. This recipe employs boneless skinless chicken breasts to make the piccata. Instead of placing the cooked chicken on a bed of pasta, it's set atop a mixture of red potatoes and green beans, with the sauce acting as a dressing for the vegetables. This affordable meal is a delicious variation on a crowd-pleasing classic, so be sure to get the recipe.
