What a perfect meal! Glenna, I remember the bland diet I was on between my acute gall bladder attack (which I had while I was at a conference at Notre Dame University) and my surgery. Potatoes, milk, bread, mild vegetables, some cheese, yogurt and oatmeal. I was on liquids for four days after surgery and my first meal was Cheerios. Oh, my they tasted so good!

Looks very very delish. Craving pasta.


Thanks y'all! I ate a lot of oatmeal too but pasta with a little zip but not too much was like water in the desert!

WOW!!! Made this tonight for dinner and got rave reviews! First time on your site but definitely not the last. You've got some great recipes here. My family thanks you immensely for the recipe!!


I have been searching for a really good Chicken Picatta recipe and came across this one. Sounds great (but w/ too much lemon it seems). I believe I can help with the lemon thing. Looking at many, many similar recipes, it appears that the total amount of lemon for this recipe should be a little over 2 ounces (about 1/4 cup) NOT 2 cups.

Another way to determine the amount of lemon to add is for each chicken cutlet add the juice of one lemon(that's what Rachael Ray does along with many others). In this case, 2 cutlets would require the juice of two lemons or about 1/4 cup.

Taste this before serving! Some adjustment may still be warranted.


I think there's a little confusion. The recipe calls for the juice and zest of ONE lemon which is about 2-3 Tbsp, depending on the size of the lemon. The rest of the sauce is made with white whine or chicken stock and a little butter.

Thanks for reading and commenting, Glenna


This chicken recipe is perfect. Chicken Piccata is also my very favorite italian chicken dish, Glenna. It would be nice if people read more carefully and not be so ready to criticize the author. The only thing I did was to load up the sauce with drained,sliced artichoke hearts. Great over steamed broccoli.It's a keeper.
