This quick and elegant dinner is a snap to make: Simply brown the veal and toss it together with the tasty pan sauce.

Ingredients

all-purpose flour

2 tbsp(s)

table salt

tsp(s), or to taste

black pepper

pinch, or to taste

uncooked lean veal leg

1 pound(s), four 4 oz scaloppini cuts

olive oil cooking spray

1 spray(s)

light butter

2 tsp(s)

pine nuts

1 tbsp(s), chopped

garlic clove(s)

1 clove(s), medium, minced

fat free chicken broth

¼ cup(s)

fresh lemon juice

3 tbsp(s)

fresh parsley

1 tbsp(s), fresh, chopped

Instructions

  1. Mix together flour, salt and pepper on a large plate. Dredge veal in flour, coating both sides and patting off any excess.
  2. Coat a large, nonstick skillet with cooking spray; set over high heat. Sauté veal on both sides until nicely browned and firm, about 2 minutes per side (sauté in batches, if necessary, recoating the pan with cooking spray between each batch); remove and set aside.
  3. Add butter, pine nuts and garlic to pan and toss over medium heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Whisk in lemon juice and broth; bring to a simmer.
  4. Return veal to pan, along with any accumulated juices, just long enough to reheat, about 2 to 3 minutes. Place veal on dinner plates, top each with 1/4 of sauce, sprinkle with parsley and serve.
