Update/Chicken Piccata

I wanna update a few I had the baby:a beautiful bouncing baby boy! Second that biscuit recipe from the previous post, is basically your own personal adaptation of what's on the back of the baking powder can. 2 cups flour, about 1/3 cup of shortening, some baking powder and soda, about 3/4 cup of milk....the important part is getting your crumble of dry ingredients and shortening. Once you have a good crumble, just add milk until everything combines well and gives you a relatively sticky dough. But here is where this recipe differs from many you NOT knead the dough. The flakiness will be destroyed and the dough will be tough if you overwork it. Pat it into a ball and roll it till desired consistency. Make your cutouts and bake at 350 till golden brown.

Chicken Picatta...I made it (and tasted) for the first time the other day...let me just say: AMAZING! The lemon flavor is intense, but so good with the garlic and butter in the sauce. I adjusted Rachael Ray's recipe, (which is a common thing for me, she's a source of inspiration for me) to what my family tends to like. I recommend throwing this into the regular rotation, its a simple meal and it really classes it up I think!
