It wasn't as lemony as you expected because you left out the capers. The capers add a lemony flavor. If you don't like capors, then you shouldn't like lemon. LOL!
Only my teen didn't care for it because she does not like capers. Oh well, hubby and I loved it. I served it over some angel hair pasta which was great with the sauce. The only change I made was to sprinkle dried parsley on top. Would make again - but only use 1 sliced lemon which is plenty.
Made this tonight. Wish the directions were more bullet points and less paragraph. Tasty, but did not have Meyer Lemons (used thicker rind lemons) or Oregano sprig (used dried), or capers (don't like them, so left them out. Not as "lemon-y" as I expected, but very tasty. Served with quinoa & spinach salad, since it's too hot to boil pasta. We ate the lemons so we got the lemon-y taste. The chicken simmered in the sauce a bit longer so the quinoa could cook. Wish there was more of the sauce!I will make it again, but will re-write directions to group ingredients to how they are added. And will remember to start the grain / pasta / rice earlier.
One of the best sauces I've made in a while. The chicken turned out great. With the capers, you have to love lemon-y taste and I do, but did not eat the lemons. Used sweet yellow onion cut finely instead of grated shallow and put more than the 1 TSP asked for.
Used a dash of dried oregano and thyme (no fresh on hand) otherwise made as written. Served with brown/wild rice combo and sauteed vegetables. Not my favorite but very good. Husband loved.
Very tasty dish that took a bit of the "bite" out of the lemons. Check out my post with step-by-step photos here: http://www.icancookthat.org/2015/01/charred-lemon-chicken-piccata.html
The lemon part was disgusting, the chicken part and sauce was amazing. Skip the lemons completely and maybe squeeze a little fresh lemon juice on the chicken or grated lemon peel. No lemon sauce and you are good.
Excellent taste, easy to add mushrooms and cherry tomatoes for one pot meal. Serve over egg noodles. Seems complicated. Just measure out everything before hand.
This was delicious! The only changes I made was that I used dried herbs and chicken broth instead of wine because I did not have these ingredients. I too used meyer lemons. The lemons made the dish - next time, after I cook the lemons, I will remove the rinds and roughly chop the citrus part to serve on top. I served with roasted asparagus and wild rice.
We all loved this, came out great and was delicious! A keeper! Made it just as written.
not the best chicken we ever ate but still very good. will defintiely make again.
Very tasty. I love lemons anyway. Cooked the lemons a little more than specified. Ate the lemons too! A great sauce for blnad chicken breast!
Used Meyer lemons. Followed the recipe exactly. Wouldn't change a thing.
This is an outstanding recipe. Made a lemon chicken lover out of my husband and that was a feat!!! I found the sauce a bit runny, so added a slurry to thicken it up, also added more capers because we like them, brine & all. I served this with mashed potatoes & roasted asparagus. Yummy dinner. Neither one of us ate those lemons BTW, even tho they did add incredible flavor to the sauce.
Very good. Didn't have shallots so sauteed onion and garlic powder. Also rinsed the capers, otherwise would have been too briny. Served with sauteed fresh spinach with a squeeze of lemon too. Noodles or rice to sop up the yummy sauce would be great. DH wanted bread for that and he doesn't like bread!
Loved this recipe. I doubled the sauce so we would have some for our side noodles. Rinsing the capers kept it from being briny like a lot of piccata recipes. Will definitely make again.
I made this on New Year's Eve, doubled and fed 8 with not many leftovers! Everyone raved about it! Followed recipe exact, but added more capers because I love them. Will defiantly save this for future use.
Very good. I overcooked the lemons a bit and the resulting lemon sauce had an odd flavor. So, I served the cooked lemon on top of the chicken, but did not use any of the liquid from the lemon cooking process. Dish was tasty non the less and I will make again.
