"This was really good, a quick chicken piccata. I made this with spaghetti on the side, using some of the sauce from the chicken. Would definately make this again"

"This was good. Everyone loved it and the sauce was great. It was very fattening, but good. We did pour the sauce on the chicken and it just made it that much yummier!"

"This was very delicious! I did not put the sauce over the chicken for my children because I did not think it would go over well. The adults didn't feel the sauce was really necessary because the chicken had so much flavor. I served it with pasta and fruit. It definately was a good meal that I will prepare again."
