Chicken Picatta

My son Fu-Yi, cooked this dish as a practise for his exam, sort of a chicken picatta without capers as he can't find any. Told him to reduce the sauce too, to thicken it a bit.  Of  course he omitted the vegetables as a side dish as he does not like vegetables. He did cook some potato gratin to go with the chicken though. 
Oh, and he made the mistake of adding the parsley too fast hence the soggy looking parsley lol! Overall, the taste was delicious! The potato gratin was pretty good too for a first timer. Hmm... I can really hang up my apron soon lol!

  22. Jeannie, you have to trust your boy. Just let him cook by his own. sometimes, they can do better than us! Don't confuse his judgement. I think he did a great job on this. I'm sure you're happy for him as well. Good luck!
    And hope you're having a wonderful evening, happy momsie!
    Cheers, Kristy
