Chicken Piccata

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

 

I do not cook meat. I eat it on occasion (chicken & pork), but I do not cook it. I stopped mostly because I was poor & meat is expensive, duh. Then, I started dabbling in vegetarianism. I do eat mostly veg, but I have never fully committed to it. One reason being: chicken piccata. The most delicious of chickens.

We had chicken in the freezer that needed to go & I felt like a challenge. Meat is a challenge! I have abnormal fears of everything so even as I’m typing this I’m worried about getting salmonella from only washing my hands 7 times instead 8. (Also, what if the chicken was under done and I kill my mother & step father? Too far? I’m sorry)
