This is a basic Chicken Piccata recipe that I revised more to my taste-it's been a big hit!

Top Review by Laura S.

Delicious and had a beautiful presentation! The tomatoes (didn't bother to peel and didn't seem to be necessary) and fresh parsley really added to the visual appeal. The chicken (I simply fileted vs pounding) I used was very lean, so I didn't have any drippings - I'd recommend adding more broth /wine to increase the amount of sauce. I did decrease the capers as suggested in another review. Thank you Janabelle - clean plates here!
