    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!

    I think that this recipe tasted restaurant quality minus the amount of artichoke hearts capers. I used canned hearts and the flavor overpowered the other ingrediants. Next time I will cut the amount of artichoke hearts by at least half and the capers by a third. The lemon taste was delicious and not overpowering. I used the pre-flash frozen chicken breasts and (this may be my error) they shredded when I pounded them instead of flattening nicely. I will use fresh breasts or chicken cutlets next time to see if this makes a difference. The sauce is delicious and I will double or triple it in the future. Even with my messed up pounded chicken it presented beautifuly. Thanks for the recipe!
