"I made this tonight for my husband & me. We really liked it. It was very easy & delicious. I will make it again, I'm sure. My husband loves chicken Piccata in restaurants, but I have never tried to make it. This was really easy. I'm sure there are more complicated recipes out there, but this worked for us just fine. Oh, I did thicken the sauce a bit with a little flour because hubby loves "gravy"."

"Very good! I didn't use 1/2 inch, but I think I would next time it didn't have enough flavor in the middle of the chicken. But it was good even 2 days later for left-overs!"

"So easy to make. I tossed in some fresh mushrooms after I turned the chicken over and then some spinach right near the end. The mushrooms were wonderful (I hate mushrooms!) and the spinach had such a delicious flavor. Made some rice for a side dish and dinner was delicious."
