A Better Alternative for a Fast Meal
If you're on a tight schedule and you need a fast meal but you don't want a meal full of preservatives and chemicals--Michael Angelo's Chicken Piccata is a great choice for you and your family. In the time it takes to toss this baby in the oven and heat it to the proper temperature, you can throw together a nice salad and boil your choice of pasta to perfection (Hint: al dente texture=perfection.)
Michael Angelo's "Naturally Italian" is a family-owned business based in Austin, Texas. The company uses "small batch" cooking and only the freshest ingredients in its recipes. To ensure the freshness of its products, the company cuts out the "middleman" and ships directly to grocers. The evidence is in the taste, which is absolutely excellent--far superior to other famous "name" brand Italian food which is available in your market. Try this brand and taste the difference!
One other note: This version of Chicken Piccata is different from the "traditional" versions that are often offered at your favorite Italian restaurants (and also often seen in recipes). Those versions usually only include chicken, capers and the wonderful lemon-butter sauce. Everyone has their own "take" on this recipe. The Michael Angelo's version is excellent with the added tomatoes and artichokes.
This photograph is what the Chicken Piccata looks like after you open the package, (except the protective film has been removed). Heat it in your oven or use a microwave for faster results. We chose the "oven method," which meant a longer heating time but it's ultimately better in terms of flavor (that goes for any dish, not just this one). Toss your ingredients around about halfway through the cooking process no matter which method you choose.

Absolutely No Preservatives
"Fast" food does not have to taste fast and it does not require loads of chemicals, fillers and other unnecessary additives. If you have a heavy schedule that doesn't include time to create your own meals from scratch then meals such as this one from Michael Angelo's is the right choice for your health and the health of your family.
This lovely gem was discovered at Costco, but Michael Angelo's has an exciting array of products at local grocers as well. Visit Michael Angelo's website to view all of their great products and use the "store finder" link to find their products at a grocer near you. You won't regret it.
Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with Michael Angelo's company or Costco except as a consumer. Companies such as these, (with superior ethics), deserve as much promotion as they can get from people like "us."
