    Excellent. Wonderful balance of flavors with a delicious and classic sauce. Like others, I used a bit less lemon and I doubled the sauce. Served it with campanelle with a light San Marzano tomato sauce and a Caprese salad. A keeper! Thanks Williams-Sonoma.

    My boyfriend and I loved this recipe. I used chicken thighs instead of breasts so I skipped the flour step. I made extra sauce to pour on the sides of mushrooms and broccoli I made. This is a great recipe for dinner guests!

    Delicious! I added in a small amount of white wine vinegar (would have just done dry white wine if I had any) and it was pretty tasty. The dish has a strong lemon flavor which I personally like but just FYI!

    Easily some of the bests chicken I've ever made. The flavor is super bright and sunny and a joy to eat. It also really compliments other Italian sides like risotto.

    Decent! I enjoyed it a lot! I cooked the chicken a little longer than it said though

    Delicious!!! I minced some garlic and added it with the shallots but everything else was the same!!! It was very easy to make!!! I would also suggest doubling the ingredients for the sauce. I would have liked a little more. But I definitely will make this again!! Delicious!!!!

    It was amazing!! My husband said it was better than Maggiano’s or any other piccata he’d ordered out at a restaurant! It didn’t seem too difficult either! I will definitely be making again-although I might double the ingredients for the pan sauce, I feel like wanted a bit more.

    Made this tonight and made minor modifications as I usually do while cooking. Was a bit too lemony so I added more wine as well as some juice from the capers. This is simple and quick. Served over a bit of spinach linguine

    The capers can overpower the dish... tart and briny masks the other flavors.

    Fantastic recipe, suggest using chicken bullion instead of broth, its a little less salty.

    Was delicious!! Was nervous about the only seasoning being the salt and pepper on the chicken but the sauce at the end made it perfect!

    Yum! I’d make it again. I added some flour to the sauce to thicken it.
