Had some thin sliced chicken someone brought over for a bbq a couple days ago but didnt notice the "Thin" on the package. So I looked up this Piccata recipe. I cooked it for my wife and we both thought it was d-lish!! Have the page book marked and will cook it again, for sure! Thanks!!

So I made this dish tonight and I was not happy with it. The chicken was awesome, but the sauce was not enough. NEED MORE SAUCE if you use the whole pasta box.

I prepared this for my wife - she rivaled the flavor to that of the Cheese Cake Factory. The recipe was easy (with one flaw, it does not mention when to add the lemon juice, so I did it when I added the capers).
The portions were hearty, leaving me with leftovers for work and the satisfaction of there being several envious co-workers of mine tomorrow when I heat up my lunch.
I would surely recommend this recipe to all my friends and family.
