Seitan Scaloppine

I have no idea if this tastes anything like chicken or veal scaloppine (or scallopini) but it does taste like good veggie food and it definitely doesn't have 71 grams of saturated fat like the copy cat Macaroni Grill recipe. The sauce was sweeter than I thought it would be (ok I used unsweetened soymilk this time, wtf?) but maybe it's supposed to be sweet.

1/2 ppk seitan recipe, sliced into thin cutlets
a few tablespoon of oil, for sauteing seitan
1/2 cup flour
4 oz veggie ham or bacon, diced
8 oz mushrooms, sliced
1 12oz can artichoke hearts, quartered
1 tbsp capers
3/4 cup broth
1/4 cup soymilk
2 lemons, juiced
2 tbsp earth balance
1/2 lb orzo, cooked
chopped parsley
