Ingredients:  
Lemon-Butter-Wine Sauce
1 c. chicken stock

1 tbsp. butter

Directions:
Directions:
To make sauce, bring stock, lemon juice and butter to a simmer. Add wine. Take out about 1/4 c. of sauce and mix with cornstarch and add back into rest of sauce and mix well. Sauce doesn't have to be thick at this point. Add parsley and cilantro.
For the veal or chicken, flatten each cutlet with a mallet. Over medium to medium-high heat, melt butter in large skillet. Saute veal 30 seconds on each side. (For chicken, saute 4 minutes on each side.) Remove pan from heat. Placed a slice of prosciutto and an artichoke heart on top of each piece of veal. Add Lemon-Butter-Wine Sauce to skillet. Add capers and pimento. Reduce sauce by about one-third. Garnish with parsley.
