aprilLumpkin should have given it a shot without capers, especially since that was its only complaint. Unbelievably tasty, low on calories, and easy to make. And that is from someone who, generally, is not a lemon type of person (also, did not include the capers, as I couldn't find them...likely because I'm still not 100% sure what the heck they are; though, it sounds like that was a good thing). I would also recommend starting with a medium, instead of medium-high heat for the initial browning. Mine ended up a bit overdone with the recommended temp/time.
Chicken Thighs Piccata-Style
Traditional chicken piccata usually features boneless chicken breasts, but in this version, chicken thighs are lightly breaded and cooked in a mixture of lemon juice, broth, and capers.
