Chicken Piccata

This Italian inspired dish is fairly light, but it certainly packs a lot of flavor! It's perfect served alone or over your choice of pasta. We love bucatini because it's similar to spaghetti, but it's thicker and soaks up more sauce. Something that is ideal for this lemon, butter sauce! We also recommend using a dry white wine like Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc. But be sure to pick a wine that is good enough for drinking. We don't want anything to go to waste!
