I love Piccata dishes, no doubt about that. I love the lemon, the wine and most of all the briny Capers. If I had things my way, I’d put Capers on everything. Okay, maybe not everything. I’d have to pass on Caper Pancakes.

Marsala dishes, like Picatta dishes, are interchangeable – that is chicken, veal or pork will work in either. My favorite Piccata is veal, for no other reason than veal was my introduction to Piccata, with chicken as a close second since that was the first Piccata I ever cooked. Although I must confess, the Pork Piccata is also delicious as part of my fabulous Six Course Italian Supper. Then again, the buttery-lemony sauce with a kiss of wine that gives Piccata its unmistakable signature goodness works well with fish such as Dover Sole. Oh let’s face it, I like Piccata.

There were pork chops calling to me and a new “simple” recipe to try.
