Pork Piccata

Pork Piccata

Chicken Piccata is a staple meal when we go on one of our quarterly trips to NJ.  It is my mother-in-law's favorite and we always bring it with us for the dinner after our 9 hour drive.  I was in the market the other day and there was a sale on pork tenderloin. Never one to pass up a sale and much less one on pork tenderloin I decided to make my chicken recipe using the pork tenderloin.  Not surprisingly this worked out very well; a little thicker than the chicken and plenty juicy and tasty.

This is a simple and easy to make dish.  Add some pasta, perhaps homemade, and a salad and your family will think they are in a restaurant.
