Need more stars! The flavor is simply amazing. We cannot get enough of it. The batter makes enough for about 12 servings and you will have MOST of the flour left over so you could probably use less of that. Also, if your family is anything like mine, you will want to make more sauce.

I liked the piccata batter with egg, parmesan and herbs. For 2 chicken breasts I used only 1 large egg, which was enough for half the batch, and used only 1/4 cup flour for dredging in. The 6 eggs in the batter must be a human error.

We had this for supper tonight. The flavor was good but not very lemony. Like the other reviewer I had a ton of the batter left over and a ton of the flour, too. Next time I will halve both those amounts and just add more if I need them.
