Outstanding! White meat is sometimes boring. Not so with this recipe. The sharpness of the wine, lemon juice & capers is refreshingly pleasant. To balance the meal, I served this with a curry rice (with golden raisins, green onions & toasted almonds) and melon peach salad, both on this website. It was great with a quality chardonnay. I plan to serve it again at a dinner party I'm giving in a couple of weeks. I think an onion focaccia with Ranch dipping sauce will make a nice appetizer. And dessert will be chocolate-dipped cookies and chamomile tea.
