Well I think I outdid myself last night with this amazing, healthy recipe that as always was easy to make as well asĀ healthierĀ and lighter.
You’ll only need a few ingredients:

1/4 cup of whole wheat flour or unbleached all-purpose
salt and pepper
1 1/2 pounds thinly sliced veal or boneless/skinless chicken breasts pounded thin
1/2 tablespoon Earth Balance or other healthy butter alternative
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Splash of Red Wine Vinegar
Capers/as many as you like
Parsley for garnish/chopped finely

On a flat plate, combine a sprinkle of salt and pepper with flour
Dredge veal or chicken through flour and put on separate plate
In a large skillet, heat up olive oil, 1-2 minutes
Put veal into hot skillet and let cook until brown, about 2 minutes, then turn and do the same
When done, transfer to plate lined with paper towel
Wipe out skillet with a paper towel, heat up and add butter alternative
Add vinegar, capers and a little more salt and pepper to taste, stir to combine
Add cooked veal and heat through. Serve immediately, and garnish with chopped parsley.

1-2 bunches fresh escarole
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 cloves fresh garlic/finely chopped
salt and pepper
Clean escarole with cold running water and pat dry or put in spinner
