    I made this last night I followed the recipe and it was delicious I followed the recipe but I added some flour to the sauce to make it a little thicker. Well I also seasoned my chicken and add a little salt to the sauce. Looking forward to the leftovers, yummy!!! Will definitely make again

    My husband and I enjoyed this delicious chicken piccata recipe. It Iwas followed the directions; however, t took longer than the prep time indicated to put together.

    Easy to follow directions, light and flavorful. I was fortunate to use herbs strait from the garden picked in the heat of the afternoon sun. I added some dehydrated Porcini mushrooms that we foraged from the forest this summer

    Definitely a keeper! The sauce is the perfect amount for two chicken breasts if you like extra sauce.

    Great recipe. Only odd thing, when I tried the flour for the chicken when frying, the chicken would get stuck onto the pan when it got to hot kinda hard to get that crisp texture. But that’s where my handy oven toaster helps out. Turns every dish crispy and tender. Thank you! Made this as the main dish and a pasta as a side.

    I've eaten this dish at restaurant and I have to say this dish is far better than the restaurant. I will definitely make this one again for my guest. I did cajunize it a bit.

    Great recipe. I used thinly sliced breasts. For wine, I used a Pinot Gris. I served it with linguine (added a little parmesan cheese, butter, parsley) and grilled asparagus. I thought it would be too lemony on taste but with the linguine it was very good.
