Reviews for Mushroom Chicken Piccata
"I used just about the same receipe that came on the box of shiitake mushrooms I had purchased. Only difference was the type of mushrooms and to also add the juice of the capers. I couldn't believe how easy and good it was. Really quick dinner. Served it with brown rice and peas."
"Excellent dish! My husband prepared it and it was delicious!! Definitely a keeper recipe... YUM!"
"I make Chicken Piccata (Lemon Chicken) all the time, but adding the mushrooms was just the perfect touch."
