    diner524's Note:

    This is a recipe from her weeknight dinner show. I love piccata and this is wonderful served over pasta and I served with salad and garlic bread. NOTE: Her recipe states to add 1/3 cup lemon juice, but alot of people that reviewed her recipe said it was too tart and would add less, so I suggest starting with 1/4 cup lemon juice.

      Perfect! I made as directed and didn't change the lemon amount, which lead to my adding more chicken broth later in the cooking process. I added a tsp of poultry seasoning to try to counter the tartness of the lemon as well. Those neutralized it and it was wonderful. I served it with orzo plain (no butter or extra sauces on the pasta), which was excellent because it absorbed the sauce so well.

      Made this exactly as written and my husband LOVED it. He is not a lemon person and he thought the sauce was delicious, may have to double that the next time I make it.

      Really very delicious! I love chicken piccata, and this one seems like the real deal. The only problem was that I found the amounts for both the lemon juice and the capers to be WAY too much. I'd start much smaller on each and then taste and add more as needed. As written, it was quite sour. Still, I will adjust and make this again. So easy, so good!
