Hey BakinBaby - thanks for some Sunday night dinner inspiration. We gave it three stars as the flavour was okay, but we made so many changes that it couldn't have been the same as yours. We always get frustrated when people review things but say they changed just about everything about the recipe. 3 for us means we would eat it again, but it doesn't blow our socks off. Healthy too which we liked. Thanks again :)

Wow, i just finished eating this and it was amazing. I took the mushrooms out cuz i hate them, used marinated artichokes, and for the seasoning i substitued in garlic salt. I will definately be making this again. 5 stars.

I loved the addition of artichoke hearts to chicken piccata, a dish I have always liked. I made only two servings, and eyeballed the ingredients, and it turned out fine. Two changes I made was to put the chicken between a couple of sheets of plastic wrap and gently pound them to make them uniform in thickness. This helps everything cook at the same time and more evenly. I also used cornstarch instead of flour as a breading. This is a trick I learned while taking Chinese cooking lessons - it makes a nicer crust than flour does, I find.
