    KateL's Note:

    Italian chicken with full lemon flavor. It is important to use fresh lemons. When I follow Toula Patsalis in "The Pressure Cooker Cookbook", I never go wrong! Serve with sauteed green beans topped with toasted slivered almonds.

      I made this for dinner tonight using my electric pressure cooker. It turned out great! I made a few changes though. We don't like olives so I used artichokes. I didn't have any sherry so I used (white) pinot gris. Also, I cut the chicken up a little before browning it because it is easier to eat that way. My husband and I both liked it. I think it tastes just like Macaroni Grill's chicken piccata since I used the artichokes....just needed a side of rosemary bread. :o)

      I love using my pressure cooker and this recipe is a perfect reason why. I used white wine for the sherry and garlic jalapeno stuffed olives. I was impressed that the breading on the chicken stayed perfectly intact after cooker! I served over a wild rice blend and with a side a peas. THANKS for telling the book's author! I just ordered myself a copy. Roxygirl

      OMG, this was fabulous for us. It has quite unique flavours with the lemon, sherry & olives that went wow in our mouths. I used italian olives for regular ones so that may have contributed a stronger olive taste. However, we really enjoyed it but I might cut back abit so it doesn't stand out more than everything else. Easy to put together & the cooking times are right on the money! Makes me want to run out to get Toula's cookbook. Thanks for sharing.
