although i had veal, i made this with chicken scallops because everyone was in a hurry to have dinner tonight, and i wasn't hungry - everyone rated this 10 stars and they liked it as much as my own personal recipe, should i be upset,:)??? start to finish, this took no time at all- i made 12 scallops in less than 20 minutes. i added white pepper to the flour mixture. i also used 6 lemon slices (1 whole lemon) and 3/4 c wine, 1 1/2 tbsp butter and fresh chopped parsley for the sauce very tasty, quick, and easy
