    The family enjoyed eating this. I followed the recipe for the chicken, but doubled the sauce. I added garlic and a little lemon juice to the sauce. I also did the cornstarch thing to thicken it just a little. I served it with Herb CousCous and green peas. Yummy.

    terrific recipe, Didn't have white wine. Didn't have italian bread crumbs. Used regular bread crumbs, added basil, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes. Delicious!!!! Also had black eyed peas and squash onion stir fry with this dish. We will make again and again.

    I made this last night, it was easy and delicious. Made extra sauce so that I could put it over whole grain pasta. It is a great every day meal or could be for something special. Will definitely make again

    This was very good. Don't be shy with the capers, they really make this dish.

  • AngelaNC Posted: 01/23/09

    Excellent flavor. I added some garlic to the chicken broth mixture. Easy and highly recommended.

    I use this recipe over and over to impress guests. I'm not a fan of capers so I leave them out- make the rest as stated. Use chicken or turkey breasts. Beautiful, healthy, quick and tasty!

  • EllenDeller Posted: 07/21/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    So simple, but so good. I added some chopped cilantro to the finished chicken (I used chicken cutlets rather than pounding chicken breasts) and served with angel hair pasta and roasted asparagus.

  • sndylthyr Posted: 04/13/09

    Very quick and easy. This will definitely be a keeper. Only change was to add a little corn starch to broth to thicken the sauce just a bit. Served with roasted asparagus with balsamic browned butter and near east rice pilaf with mushrooms.

    Made this recipe without changing anything! Loved it! It was easy to make, and very mosit and flavorful. I served it with spinach with oil and garlic, and a salad. Will make it again!

  • Tricia32 Posted: 05/15/09

    So good and so easy. I used the thin cut Perdue chicken breasts and the whole meal was on the table in 25 minutes. I made angel hair pasta tossed with wilted spinach on the side and bread of course. The only thing I added was lemon-pepper seasoning to the chicken before I breaded it. This would be great to entertain with too!

  • cookfromsocal Posted: 07/01/10

    Didn't make any changes to the recipe. Next time will probably add more capers, love them. Delicious, easy and had all the ingredients on hand. A definite repeat.

  • KristieS Posted: 01/10/10

    This was really good. My picky kids ate it. I did have to use olive oil in the skillet when cooking the chicken. I too added garlic and a little additional lemon juice. I let the sauce simmer a littler longer. I also added the chicken back to the sauce to heat back up for a few minutes. I served it with Pasta Roni Olive Oil and Italian Herb Linguine and salad. I will make this again.

    Very simple recipe with fabulous results! We had a neighbor over for dinner before a football game and we tried out this recipe. He is a good cook and he loved it too. I cooked baked sweet potatoes, lima beans and spinach to go along with this. No rice but added crescent rolls. Yummm! So awesome, I will plan this for our next small dinner party. I'm not sure how I could cook this for more than 6 people at a time.

  • karen0920 Posted: 02/24/10

    My family loved it and said they hope I make it again soon. I didn't have capers for the sauce, but no one thought it really had to have sauce at all.

  • ssdkroll Posted: 07/20/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    I loved this recipe. Made it exactly as recipe stated and it turned out delicious. Served it over a some mashed potatoes with a side salad. I think next time I will try to thicken the sauce just a little bit and add garlic in the chicken broth mixture as another reviewer did. Super easy and looks gourmet!

  • ChristingFa Posted: 06/19/09

    These cutlets have a thinner batter than the typical cutlets dredged in egg. Delicious flavour, I tend to make these once every few weeks. My husband is in love with the pan sauce!

    Can not say enough about this recipe. It is restaurant quality food! I was rushed with time to make dinner and not only was this delicious, it was pretty quick to make as well. Served with Garlic Green Beans from Southern Living . . . amazing!!!!

  • michelletelliga Posted: 08/09/09
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    It is difficult to get my family to eat chicken, and it somehow always ends up too dry no matter how I prepare it. We all LOVED this chicken! I could not believe how quickly and easily the meal came together, and the presentation is beautiful. I would definitely serve this to company. The only modification I made was to buy the thin boneless chicken breasts to eliminate the pounding step.

  • AllenB52 Posted: 04/03/10

  • kimber24 Posted: 08/26/10
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This is super delish and a really quick recipe to make. I usually substitute breasts with cutlets because I like thinner cuts of meat and it cuts down on the amount of time it takes to pound thin. This recipe works great with turkey cutlets too. I've made it several times now and we like it more and more each time!

    There are many great reviews of this dish, but I still wanted to add mine. Generally, it is hard to get my family to eat white meat chicken, as I tend to overcook it, but this dish was easy and a big success for all of us. We ate it with pasta, and the light sauce was a great match. Will definitely make it often.

  • jenny2 Posted: 01/22/10

    So good! This is my favorite restaurant order and will now be in my permanant rotation at home. Very easy and quick. Steak and potato BF loved it. Served with roasted veggies tossed with orzo pasta. It's a keeper!

  • wlyjm1 Posted: 12/21/10

    I have been making this recipe for years. I found it in The "Cooking Light Annual Recipes 2004". I always mix my own Italian seasoning into really good plain bread crumbs I buy in my area (either using fresh herbs on hand or my favorite dry Italian seasoning). I also add grated lemon peel to the crumbs for a fresh lemony flavor. Depending upon the amount of sauce I want I might add more lemon juice, chicken stock, and white wine. I serve with an Orzo, tomato, and zucchini recipe prnted in the Menu side bar along with the recipe. My family just loves this dish. We are even going to have it for Christmas Eve Dinner. Nice enough to be festive, but light enough that we can save our super indulgent Christmas Day.

    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    I tired these yesterday and I have to say they were such a hit! I didn't have Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs so I made my own seasoned breadcrumbs. Also, as i was making this dish ahead, I only cooked the chicken about 2 minutes tops on each side. It turned out very tender and not dry at all. Will definitely do it again!

  • JoannahZ Posted: 02/08/11

    This recipe was underwhelming. Cooking Light has much better chicken recipes than this that require the same effort/prep. Not likely to make it again.

    This recipe was very tasty and easy to make. I already had all of the ingredients, including the capers which gave it a flavor boost. It made enough for a second meal for my husband and myself. I will definitely make this recipe again. It will make a good company dish, also.

  • hazelnut4 Posted: 07/09/10

    This was tasty. We used cooking sherry because we did not have dry white wine. We will definitely make it again since it was quick and easy!

    The flavor is OK, but I have made this twice and both times the bread crumbs did not stick to the chicken. Am I missing something?

  • DustiS Posted: 11/30/10
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    Very tasty! Everyone loved it and the picky 14 year old ate 4 pieces. I used chicken tenders instead of breasts and still pounded them very thin. They turned out perfect. Served brown rice and steamed broccoli and hot rolls, too! Will make it again... and yes, company worthy.

  • irishmustang Posted: 01/02/11

    For the past several years, I have been a microwave dinner type of guy, but I wanted to try eating healthier. This was the first recipe I tried and I loved it! The chicken was very juicy and tasted great. I had never had capers before, but they definitely added some nice taste to it. I used Yellow Tail Riesling for the wine and it definitely blended well with everything. I just made some whole-grain brown rice with it and the wine sauce tasted great on that as well. I will definitely make this again.

  • CaraCook Posted: 03/24/11

    Delicious and easy! I had four large chicken breasts which I cut in half after pounding thin. I therefore doubled the sauce (to which I added some garlic) - boiled some linquine and tossed with a little olive olive and drizzled with some of the extra sauce. Everyone loved it! (I did not use a non-stick skillet therefore used more olive oil in browning the chicken).

  • msmstl Posted: 02/03/11

    Delicious! My husband loved this and so did I - never made anything scallopini before and loved it! My only change was to add a lot more lemon juice and a bit more butter to the sauce itself. I made Mediterrainean Couscous (ina Garten'ss recipe) to go with it and it was a terrific meal. Hubby loved it so much, requsted it again tonight!

  • MBriggs Posted: 01/06/12
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    Entire family really enjoyed this recipe. Very simple to make & makes for a great presentation on the plate. My only comment is to be mindful of the tartness of the sauce. For the kids, I left the sauce off entirely (which they loved), For the adults, just eased up on the sauce, so it wouldn't be overpowering. Defintely a recommend!

  • Jamiekn Posted: 01/23/12
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    Delicious! I split the chicken breasts in half and then pounded those out. Very thin & very good. Doesn't take long to cook the breasts so they stay very moist. My husband really enjoyed this and even took it to work the next day. Delish!

    not enough bread crumbs to cover all that chicken, but i used panko, so maybe that ws the problem. i used itailan seasonings too flavor the panko

  • shan670 Posted: 09/25/12
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    My whole family cleaned their plates with this one, (including a 7 yr old and a picky 19 year old.) I used frozen grilled chicken patties (precooked) and chicken broth instead of the wine. The precooked chicken shortened the cooking time and with no pounding needed so by the time the pasta was cooked it was finished. I also used lemon pepper panko bread crumbs. Served it over angel hair pasta. Really simple, quick and Yummy.

  • jespezz Posted: 09/25/12

    I was out of the capers, and used panko instead of regular breadcrumbs. Delicious and easy recipe! Only 5pts on the new weight watchers program. (but you don't have to tell your guests it's light!) So good!!! We served this dish with brown rice and used the sauce for both the chicken and the rice. What more can I say? Try it!!
