Chicken Picatta

3-4 boneless chicken breasts (pounded out to 1/4" thick or less)
3-4 carrots, peeled, quartered, sliced to 2"-3" lengths
1-2 cups sliced, fresh, mushrooms
salt & pepper
1-2 Tblsp. olive oil
1-2 Tblsp. butter
2 Tblsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup white wine (or vermouth)
2-3 Tblsp. capers

Pound out the chicken, pepper both sides well (you can use or not

smaller medallions for better coating and "stirring" in the next

After the sauce has started to thicken slightly, add the chicken
to the mixture and stir (saute flip) everything together. Get the
chicken coated well with the sauce. The chicken's flour should
help the thickening process even further.

Add in a couple of tablespoons of drained capers (or more if you
like). Saute flip some more and serve!
