Chicken Piccata

I found a new blog that I LOVE…My baking Addiction She mainly bakes but she also makes other stuff and I found this recipe. Her name is Jamie as well (what a great name) and she spells it the same way I do! I have always wanted to make this recipe…I love Lemons, garlic and capers, and white wine put them all together and you got you a yummy meal!
