    Toby Jermain's Note:

    This dish goes well with hot buttered fettuccini or egg noodles and cooked chilled broccoli, dressed with olive oil, lemon juice, and a sprinkling of toasted pine nuts or slivered almonds.

      I knew this would be a winner with capers and lemon - my favourites. This looks like little more work than some of the other Picatta recipes, but WELL worth the little extra time. It is easy and didn't take long at all to make. I used turkey tenderloins instead of chicken, because that's what I had on hand. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly, choosing the dry sherry route as I had no madeira. I will be making this often, with turkey, chicken and veal. Thanks Toby!
