Meyer Lemon Chicken Picatta

I’m a big fan of spring. My favorite flowers come out of hiding. Purple dots of violets appear in the newly greened grass. Lily-of-the-Valley, lilacs, pansies, daffodils and tulips take turns putting on show of pastel colors and delicate scents.

Daylight isn’t as fast to disappear as snow and ice.

Fresh local veggies start to reappear at farmers markets and neighborhood stores. Time to start planning my own garden too!

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, “spring chicken” so a young tender chicken dish it will be! A dish with my favorite citrus of course, Meyer Lemon!
