Meyer Lemon Chicken Piccata

    Quick, easy, and delicious. I opted to use lemons I had on hand as the Meyers were very expensive. I'm sure they would be great in the dish to serve guests for a dinner party. 14 y.o. daughter declared the chicken, "one of the best" although she had the sauce without capers. This goes together easily. I served it over angel hair pasta lightly tossed with melted butter, salt, and parsley. Oven-roasted asparagus with garlic finished the plate. It looked as good as it tasted. Definitely adding this one to our regular rotation.

    Awesome and easy recipe. My husband said- this ones a winner, and when I asked him what I should make for the girls night at my house- he replied -what about that new chicken dish. Great flavor, and I serve the chicken and sauce over linguini, with some roasted asparagus. I look like a gourmet cook.

    Really good and easy. We did use Meyer lemons. Now we'll have to try some of the other recipes with them.

    This is on the list to make again. A very simple and quick recipe. I was amazed at how flavorful the broth was for how simple the recipe.

    Terrific sauce! Did not use meyer lemons, because not available. Looking forward to trying the recipe with the meyer lemons.

    I'm fortunate to have a Meyers lemon tree in my front yard. I have made this twice. Once with Savignon Blanc and the second time with Barefoot Pinot Grigio which was my favorite as it really gave the sauce a great crisp flavor. Going to use the leftover chicken in a Ceasar Salad or a Greek Salad. This is a keeper as it is quick, easy and good!

    It was delicious! My two kids and DH cleaned their plates and went back for seconds...

    YUM! Doubled the sauce part to make enough to serve over angel hair pasta (and added just a bit of cornstarch mixed with chicken broth to help thicken it up). Also served with roasted asparagus.

    What a great recipe! We really enjoyed this dish. I sliced three chicken breasts in half and detached the tenders from each. I didn't pound the chicken, as it was at the desired thickness after I sliced it. I served the chicken to our kids without the sauce and it was a big hit. There were no Meyer's lemons at my local supermarket, so I used one large lemon for the sauce and it yielded 1/3 cup of juice. The capers are a nice touch too.

    I've been searching for a great Picatta. This is it for me! I sauteed some mushrooms before the chicken and used regular lemons. Perfection over pasta!

    This was fantastic! I left out the capers because I don't like them, but made everything else as written. The lemon sauce was great!

    My 4 year old and chef-husband approved! This recipe was easy to make and really turned out well! Definitely a keeper. (We used regular lemons, but lessened the amount since Meyer lemons were not available and they are a bit sweeter than regular lemons.)

    Even though I messed up and dumped the lemon in before the stock it was still tasty. I couldn't reduce the sauce because the lemon would have been overpowering but I look forward to making it correctly the next time.

    This recipe was absolutely delicious! Unfortunately, my grocery store doesn't carry Meyer lemons, so i subbed-in normal lemons and it was divine! My family loves lemon-chicken and this was a huge hit! I didn't bother waiting for the sauce to reduce down to 2 tablespoons because we like a lot of sauce, then I slid the chicken back into the pan and coated it with the sauce before serving with broccoli and garlic and parmesan flavored couscous, so yummy! We will definitely be making this one again and again! Thanks CL!

    I found this to be too tart. I used the meyer lemons, but the finished dish was just too sour. I probably won't make it again, just because I have other versions of this that turn out better.

    This was such an easy recipe and it was delicious! I have tried many chicken piccata recipes and this one was the best.

  • julie927 Posted: 02/27/12

    A yummy recipe.....I doubled the sauce ingredients and still had very little sauce ....and we all wanted more! Easy and quite tasty even using regular lemons. I would totally make this again.

  • Greg1980 Posted: 01/06/13

    This was one of the worst recipes I've ever tried. There was too much lemon so I ended up dumping the sauce out and we ate the chicken plain. Keep in mind that I like lemon, but this sauce had the most dreadful flavor. There have to be better recipes out there.

  • ttsholland Posted: 10/07/12

    very nice, fresh, light, I used a bit of corn starch to thicken the sauce

    This is a really nice variation on the typical chicken piccata, and definitely a keeper. The sauce is not overpoweringly lemony, and the recipe is easy to make. I also like the idea of rinsing the capers to reduce the amount of sodium they add to the dish. I made one substitution, using whole wheat flour instead of the all-purpose for dredging the chicken.

    I loved the flavors. The recipe was quick and easy. Even my husband thinks he could manage it.

    Delicious. Served with whole wheat thin spaghetti and sauteed/steamed broccoli and carrots.

  • AustinCheryl Posted: 01/12/14

    I made the full sauce for half the chicken (for two diners), and it definitely didn't need even 1.5 lemons. I used the juice of just one of my large Meyer lemons, and it was perfect. Also didn't boil the sauce down quite as much, since we wanted enough sauce to coat the chicken as well as the angel hair pasta. Lovely flavor, and I'll keep this as my standard Piccata recipe.

  • jodioschmidt Posted: 06/15/14

    This is one of our favorite dishes. We love the way the flavors come together. As soon as I see Meyer lemons in the store this recipe gets pulled out and made
