Excellent piccata sauce with lots of garlic and sliced artichoke hearts. Perfect on flattened pan fried chicken.

Although this recipe has a nice flavor and saves well for future use. it lacks the richness of a true picatta. I will use this in a pinch but probably not for guests. Read More

Delicious! Perfect consistency for piccata sauce over angel hair! I didn't have any artichokes but I'm sure it will be delicious with those thrown in too! Read More

Pretty Good. Needs a little more zip but I always try to follow a recipe the first time around. Chopping the capers may have taken away from their tartness... which can be a good or bad thing depending on your tastes! PERFECT consistency. I made again with no artichokes and it was delicious! From now on I will probably skip them since i rarely have them on hand! Read More

I had no chicken broth and had to sub wine for this sauce and it didn't say what kind of artichoke hearts to use so I used Trader Joe's marinated hearts. I also added another little dab of butter to it when it was finished. I put this over chicken that I sautéed with butter and olive oil seasoned with Papa's Seasoning from this site and a little Tajin. We practically inhaled this dish! Very yummy and very easy too. Yum!

I didn't have any cornstarch so I used the butter and made a roux to start with. Then added the other ingredients and stirred to desired thickness. Served tossed with pasta and veges. Quite nice. Read More
