  1. I actually really enjoyed your video. I wanted chicken piccata tonight for dinner and you cleared up a few questions that most people don't answer. I ha e to say… I am so thrilled to see you as a real person vs the somewhat fake person I use to try to watch a few years ago. Thank you so much!


  2. This all looks nasty. From the blan looking finished dish, the salmonella infested bar of soap, and the dirty sponge. Y’all made it clear this was before she was trained as an actual chef/ tv personality/ fake Italian accenter 😂

  3. Couple of suggestions please.
    Make the sauce thicker instead of running will keep the flavor of the chicken intact and enhance the taste.
    Add bit of garlic it will take the flavor to another level.
    Finally I am loving the hygiene level you are maintaining.
    Keep up the good job.

  4. Good show teaching everyone how to maintain hygiene, washing hands after touching chicken and then cleaning knife and the chopping board immediately after the use. I exactly work the same way.
    Not to forget your cooked chicken looks so yummy.

  5. You don't ever put raw meat on a wooden cutting board…it has the chicken gunk in the minute scratches and gouges that you have to sanitize off…a quick clean won't do it. One of the tips that I've heard is get a plastic, scratch resistant set with different colors or mark with different nail for chicken, one for beef, one for pork, one for seafood. I use my wooden board for veggies.

  6. Lol that putting away for next time thing is no good, I am an appliance repair tech and let me tell you most people that cook have EXCESS Ziploc bags with meat/sauces/stocks 😂🤣😂 just use it all or throw it away 🤣. They're only like 1$ its not worth the mess in the fridge 🤣
