I agree, this recipe is delicious but you forgot a critical ingredient — capers! I added them right at the end with a little juice from the bottle and it gave the dish the needed tanginess.

This is just THE best chicken piccata recipe ever. It's so simple to make. I always cook it in a large cast iron skillet. I have made it for large groups and for smaller ones (i.e., for 5 -- my family) and it is ALWAYS a hit. I made it for a large group by putting the oven on 250, placing finished, cooked chicken in non-stick aluminum foil, and cooking in batches.

I tried this recipe and It was fantastic. When my hubby and me sat down for dinner and taste it for the first time, we both look at each other and couldn't believe how the lemon taste so wonderful with the chicken. I used oat flour instead of All purpose flour. The mashed potatoes and green beans are sooo good too!

This was so simple and yummy! I defrosted some peas in the microwave and then threw them in the sauce for flavor before bringing them to the table.

I made this tonight and my husband couldn't get enough of it! The upshot is, he doesn't like anything "too lemony" but he really loved this recipe. It is sure to be one of the favorites in my recipe box. Love the show -- great, easy-to-follow (and understand) recipes. Thanks!
