Reviewed Chicken Piccata with Lemon, Capers and Artichoke Hearts

Jan 21, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

SO good! I butterflied the chicken before pounding it. Additionally, after cooking the chicken in batches, I added mushrooms, onion, and garlic with a little chicken stock to scrape up the brown bits from the pan. I also used 3/4c each stock and wine as others have suggested. I used the zest and juice of one large lemon. I topped it with fresh parseley...

Really delicious! This recipe was easy and tasty. Will definitely make again. I subbed the chopped peppers for mushrooms and added tomato sauce to the bottom of the pan. I used all beef. Next time I will make a double batch of the filling to freeze for easier future prep. I also boiled the peppers a little longer as other reviewers suggested. I served...

SO delicious and healthy! Really glad I made a double batch, which froze well. I also added 1 lb of ground turkey breast to make it a heartier meal. It's nice with chopped fresh mint on top and garlic naan bread from whole foods on the side and to dunk. I didn't have enough chickpeas so I substituted a can of kidney beans which was nice."

This has been my favorite chili "base" recipe for the past few years, mostly because of the beer and the chipotles adobados. I add diced zucchini, jalapeno, mushrooms, peppers, and a little cinnamon, cumin, and cocoa powder. At the end I add 2 or 3 cans of beans such as red kidney, black, and garbanzo. I love to add grilled or frozen corn too. It "

It was delicious and easy, but next time I will use less olive oil. It went really well with Giada's paprika couscous."

It was pretty good. I used turkey breast to make it healthier but the red onion had a raw turkey appearance when eating it. I've been to Thailand and love Thai food, but the amount of fish sauce in this dish turned me off a little. It seemed a bit overpowering. We added some crunchy peanuts on top of the lettuce wraps and it was good. I don't thin"

Very delicious, and goes well with Ina's Moroccan Chicken Tajine. I used sodium free stock in a box and golden raisins instead of currants. I added parsley to the final product.""

So delicious!!!! I followed the recipe (used half the salt) but made it in my pressure cooker in 8 minutes for 10 chicken thighs. It went really well with the Moroccan couscous recipe by Ina. I marinated the chicken for 24 hours and made my own preserved lemons with half the salt based on the instructions on the show. I will be making it again fo...

This is so delicious! I added celery, a green peeled squash, and a can of white cannelini beans (I pureed half of it with some of the stock). I also added garlic. I didn't have herbs de provence so I added thyme, parsley, oregano, and basil, and also some red pepper flakes. I used half shallots, half onions based on what I had at home. I made t...

So good! I've made this a few times and it is always delicious. I added an onion and baby bella mushrooms as well. Skipped the prosciutto. I also used 4 huge chicken breasts on the bone rather than half-breasts and it came out great. I served it with whole wheat penne pasta.""

It was really delicious, even though I omitted the pancetta! I found it funny that I cut off my parmesan rind while my parmesan was still in use, but it did add a lot of flavor. I was gentle with my rosemary sprigs, and not too many of them fell off, but you could definitely taste the rosemary in the soup, in a good way. I couldn't find swiss chard...

This came out delicious! It took at least 40 minutes to cook, and although I couldn't get my farro completely tender, when contrasted with the crunchy pine nuts, you can't tell. I wish I had known in advance that it had to be soaked for 30 minutes before cooking, since that made for a very late dinner! Overall it was a lot of work, but with a delicious...
