When I saw the recipe called for paprika I almost did not make this... It just sounded awkward. Regardless, I plunged ahead and made it anyways. I'm glad I did it was so simple and it was delicious! No changes at all! Read More

Made exactly as directed and it's really good! I make sandwiches out of it for my 3 y.o. and 10 y.o. picky eaters before I add lemon juice and capers to the remainder for the hubs and me. Easy and delicious! Read More

I usually cook my chicken this way because it always comes out moist and juicy! This is an easy weeknight dinner and pretty quick too! The only change I sometimes make is to make a sauce to pour over the chicken (which is especially great to pour over sides like mashed potatoes or vegetables. When I remove the chicken, I deglaze the pan with some extra chicken broth and add the lemon juice to the sauce. Sometimes I will also add a little white wine or extra butter to it. Then I turn up the heat and let it reduce a bit (and add a small amount of cornstarch if needed). And once the sauce is thick, I pour it over all the cooked chicken and any sides. It adds extra flavor to the dish. Read More

This is a pretty good chicken dish, but I wouldn't actually call it a piccata without the use of capers. I would add some more flavoring to the sauce (better than bouillon or a little wine) before reducing the sauce. I would maybe make this again. Read More
