    Made it as a double batch with steamed veggies and roasted potatoes. Great meal. The chicken itself took a while though as I had to cook it in 4 batches.
    Awesome, simple dish!! Would double the sauce next time.

    I've made this dish with a few other recipes, and this is the first one my husband liked. I've made it three times now and with each preparation he has gone back for seconds. This one stays in rotation!

    Great recipe I confess I couldn’t think of what I would use the rest of the jar of capers with so I used the whole jar. Easy to follow thanks!

    Delicious! Lots of flavor. I used lime, because I have a lime tree, and being Mexican I prefer it. I used basil instead of parsley, because of what is available in my garden, I served it with zucchini pasta since I am growing zucchini, I tossed it in the left over piccata sauce. I also used chicken thighs and it taste great.

    Very simple but good. I didnt have lemon at the time but it was still good. A hearty meal that i teamed up with potatoes.

    It turned out very tasty! I added a slurry(cornstarch and water) to thicken the sauce. I doubled the recipe, it was a hit.
