Low-Carb Chicken Piccata

My sister-in-law sent me this low carb recipe for piccata.
You can make it with turkey or chicken. It is actually quite good.
This particular time, I forgot to do what she suggested and cut
the fillets in half. Next time–makes for cooking through the
center of the meat faster. My husband ate a cutlet and he really
liked it. Consider serving with veggies, salad! Low
