    Southern Lady's Note:

    Courtesy of Giada on Everyday Italian. I haven't tried it but it was reviewed well with notes that the saffron makes the dish. I will use chicken breasts, sliced in half across the thickness and then pounded to form the scaloppini

      My family and I really liked this recipe, but I thought the sauce was a bit liquidy so I thickened it with a little flour. I also squeezed lemon on top of the finished dish to add a bit of citrus flavor to the dish. It was great, my husband sopped up the sauce from the pan with some bread cuz he loved it.
