This gluten-free pancetta chicken piccata dish is moist, flavorful and fast to prepare.
The kids really love it, but I’m not sure if I can get them to eat it again after my husband told them that capers were frog testicles. I think I’ve finally convinced them that they’re actually flower buds from a bush. 😉
Chicken Piccata is one of my all-time favorite chicken recipes.
