In my quest to lose weight, I take a lot of low fat frozen dinners to work. One of my favorites was a low fat wersion of Chicken Piccata. I experimented with a Chicken Piccata Recipe and made my own low fat version that was just as tasty. To quote a well known beer slogan "Tastes great less filling..."

Made this for supper tonight, it was quite good, but more bland than I thought it would be, next time I would add maybe a little peri peri or cayenne, to give it a little zip. the only change I made was the chicken broth, I used chicken broth with garlic and herbs, thanks for sharing.

Fabulous! I added some garlic to the oil and sauteed the chicken in that and I added 1 small jar of capers to the sauce to make it more "authentic" The addition of the capers make it taste more like true picatta and also add that extra zip to solve the blandness problem of the previous reviewer had. had

Excellent and tasty! I forgot to dip the chicken in the milk but it still turned out great! I used one whole fresh lemon and decreased the sugar by maybe 1/2 tsp. Will make again!
