2 tbsp  white all purpose flour
0 1/2 tsp  salt
0 1/4 tsp  black pepper
1 lb  Veal, breast, whole, raw
2 tsp  olive oil
2 each  medium garlic cloves
0 1/2 cup  low fat unsalted chicken broth
1 tbsp  fresh lemon juice
3 tbsp  chopped parsley
1 tbsp  capers
0 1/2 tsp  grated lemon rind
  1. In a large plastic bag with a zip top add the first 3 ingredients. Seal and shake to mix well.
  2. Add the veal one at a time to coat evenly with flour mixture.
  3. Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large pan over medium high heat. Cook half of the veal until lightly browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer from pan to a plate and set aside.
  4. Add in remaining teaspoon of oil and cook the remaining veal cutlets. Transfer to plate with the other cutlets and return pan to stove.
  5. Lower heat to medium and add half of the garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds. Stir in the broth and lemon juice. Simmer until sauce reduces slightly, about 3-4 minutes.
  6. In the meantime, mix together the parsley, capers, lemon zest, and remaining garlic in a small bowl. Add mixture into sauce and add cutlets back in and warm thoroughly.
