Affectionately referred to as 'flat chicken' by my family, this recipe is a favorite! My mom would make it once a week and now my kids and I carry on the tradition. It is flavorful, easy and goes well with rice or pasta.

Loved this recipe. I had done a couple of tweaks to it. I floured the chicken before I dipped the chicken into the egg then bread crumbs. I also did as one of the other reviews had suggested. After I cooked all the chicken I added about 1 tsp. of butter into the non-stick fry pan to which I added 1 tsp. flour. Once incorporated I added about cup milk cappers 1 tbsp. capper juice and 1 tsp. lemon juice. Mixed and allowed to simmer for a couple of minutes. Family loved it thanks Lisawas for this recipe. Will be doing again. Read More

This was tasty. I used panko bread crumbs added salt and pepper to the chicken and pan fried in a mixture of olive oil and butter until golden brown and cooked through. I squeezed lemon juice onto the chicken along with the caper juice and served it with salad. Read More

This is a great dish! The directions for the sauce were perfect as a novice cook I needed that specific info. I added garlic as well as some cornstarch to the sauce to make it even thicker. I didn't have wine (cooking or regular) on hand so used a mixture of half apple cider vinegar and half water. That worked just fine but next time I'll make sure to use wine for more flavor. Read More

It was pounded chicken with capers on top. Nothing special. If you like capers it is good -- capers on chicken. Read More
