1/3 Photos of Olive Garden Chicken With Lemon Marjoram Sauce
I made this for dinner tonight and it tasted fabulous! It was the best Chicken Picatta recipe I have ever had. I made some changes since I first posted the recipe, and suggest you double the sauce if you want to top pasta in addition to the chicken. Personally, I serve it with garlic mashed potatoes. (I save the little garlic containers I get from Papa John's Pizza and mash them into my potatoes -- easy and yummy)
