Delicious!!! We love chicken piccata and this was a nice switch with the crispy cornflake crust!! I followed as written, except I forgot to get mushrooms and subbed regular onion for the green onion and it was devoured by my family. Will be making this again!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for photo tag!!
