This dish is so simple to execute. The capers give the dish a salty and tangy flavor while the lemon cuts through the richness from the butter. White wine balances out all of the flavors so that you get a really tasty mouthful.

There's not much wine in the dish and is fine for kids too.

This dish is served on so many wedding buffets so you can be sure that it's elegant enough to serve your guests.

The chicken piccata was served with rice and zucchini for that easy cheap dinner.

I really love cooking with marsala wine. It imparts such a nice flavor to any dish. In addition to this pork chop recipe I have added it in chicken dishes and it's fantastic!

The sauce in this dish is lovely. The flavors from the apricot and marsala work harmoniously into a wonderful sauce.

We served the Pork Chops Marsala with mashed potatoes and sweet baby peas. This tasty recipe is a budget-friendly dinner idea.

Who doesn't love sausage and peppers? This family favorite was made with tri-colored tortellini pasta. 

Zucchini was added in as an extra vegetable to the dish. Zucchini is so inexpensive, has great flavor when dressed up and is available year round. Those of you with gardens know how plentiful it is so here's another way to use it up.

This is a very family friendly dish as well as being a cheap dinner idea.

We served the dish with rice and sweet baby peas. As I said above, marsala wine imparts such great flavor to whatever you are making. It's always nice to keep it on hand.
