Quick Veal Picatta

Ready in 45 minutes

A quick veal dish that looks and tastes as if you spent hours. Also works very well if you substitute chicken breast halves for the veal scallops.

"Loved it!!! My picky five-year old even liked it "a little". I will try it with chicken soon!"

Are you making this?

1/2 cup Flour
6 tablespoon Butter
12 Whole mushrooms
2 tablespoon Fresh parsley; chopped
1 Lemon; sliced
1 Lemon; juiced
1/2 cup White wine; or vermouth

Original recipe makes 6



Slice mushrooms length-wise. Pound the scallops until thin and even. Salt and pepper scallops and drop one at a time into a bag with the flour. Shake until lightly coated. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in skillet over medium heat. As soon as butter begins to melt, add the mushrooms and teaspoon of the lemon juice. Once mushrooms are wilted, pour entire contents into a shallow bowl and quickly wipe skillet. Place skillet back on the burner to re-heat. Once skillet is hot, add the remaining three tablespoons of butter. Quickly cook the scallops until they are brown only at the edges. Remove to a serving platter. Add the wine or vermouth and stir, being sure to incorporate the pan drippings. Return the mushroom and lemon juice mixture to the skillet and allow to simmer for a minute or two, then pour over the meat. Garnish with lemon slices and parsley.

Don't use fancy mushrooms- lemon can over-shadow flavor. Veal must be paper thin or cooking time increases dramatically. Flavor is nice; simple ingredients make it easy; ok to cut back on butter and add more wine.

Quick, healthy and delicious. I added wine to the mushrooms while cooking, also.
