This was absolutely wonderful! I made this exactly as directed except for two things: I sliced the chicken breasts in half and lightly pounded them, and I coarsely chopped the capers (from experience, so that they don't roll off the chicken). Chicken piccata is one of my favorite dishes, and this recipe is a winner. You've done it AGAIN, Mean - yet another stellar recipe!
This is the best and the easiest Chicken Piccata recipe I came across, and I tried quite a few of them. This recipe is quick for a weekday meal, and fancy enough for company. Ballottine
