Very good! It took a while to prepare but it was worth it. I used a gluten-free all purpose flour blend and gluten-free noodles and it turned out great! The sauce thickened perfectly. The only thing I would change is adding more lemon flavor and perhaps a little bit of spiciness. I think next time I will add some lemon zest and crushed red pepper.
Excellent remake of a CLASSIC recipe. The whole point of the flavorings is make a briny sauce so if you don't like briny then don't make it. I simply tossed the cutlets in the all the flour eliminating combining some with the broth because when you deglaze the pan the flour from the chicken creates the sauce and it thickens a little more when you put the chicken back in to blend the flavors for 5-6 minutes at the end. Instead of pasta I use green beans much healthier choice. I also added the zest of a lemon and used all the juice from the lemon which I heated in the microwave for 30 seconds to increase the juice yield. One of our family favs.
Ingredients Are Bad for You Unless the ingredients listed are all grown NON GMO and chicken is raised organic and free range this recipe is very bad for you. It also suggested tilapia instead of chicken and it's been proven that fish is the absolute worse fish you can eat. Salt too... should be completely eliminated from all diets. Pros: Low in Calories Cons: Wheat flour chicken broth all bad for your health.
Easy and great as leftovers! This was such a tasty and easy dish to make! I had read it was a little bland so I added a heaping 1/4 cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese and crushed red pepper to the sauce. I also rinsed the capers before adding them to cut down on the briney taste. It came out great! Pros: simple recipe freezes well
author needs to look up the definition of Piccata. Author needs to look up the definition of Piccata. It means SPICY! Nothing in this recipe suggest that. It is not a bad dish; however it is not being sold the right way. Pros: easy to make Cons: won't taste like you would expect
Wonderfully yummy! Hubby loved this and asked me to keep the recipe so I could make it again. He loves calamari and is anxious to try this sauce with it but enjoyed the chicken tremendously! I'm not much of a chef but this made me look like one! Pros: Fairly forgiving -- Did not use exact amounts Cons: Would start pasta a bit later in the process say after starting mushrooms
Awesome with chicken or fish/salmon I love this recipe I've made it before glad I found it again making it tonight but using tilapia instead of chicken. The people who are giving this a poor rating must not know how to cook. When I finished it tast like something out of a restuarant.
Too many capers This is the first eating well recipe that I couldn't eat. I followed the recipe exactly except I used Wegman's Don't be chicken vegetarian chicken patties because I don't eat meat. They are the only part of the meal that I can eat though. I made a double batch and my gut told me that 1/4c of capers was too much and I was right the sauce had a briney flavor that I just couldn't fix. I might try this again but without the capers. It's a shame because I had gotten some really nice locally grown mushrooms that had wonderful flavor and now they will be going in my compost bin. Pros: Has potential
Really Great!! I found this recipe easy to make and simply delicious. I doubled the recipe since I was cooking for six people. Everyone loved it! The sauce is not supposed to be thick but you can make it as thick as you like by adding more flour or cornstarch to the broth mixture. I can't wait to make it again!! Pros: Easy to make Cons: Had to double the recipe to have enough food
not cheap i dont understand how this is cheap when i had to buy almost everything on the ingredient list. for me this was a total of 54.00 including the wine. Pros: alot of good indgredients Cons: too much money
Yummy! I've made this twice and my husband and toddler love it. The only thing I'll do different next time is add the flour to the stock while cooking rather than seperately in a bowl. I've had to drain it each time because it's not quite thick enough for my liking and takes forever to reduce. I give it 4.5 stars! Pros: healthy nice earthy flavor Cons: time
Can be fixed I normally like the Eating Well recipes but was disappointed with this one. I'm not a fan of whole wheat pasta but decided to use it for this recipe. The flavor of the pasta overwhelmed everything else in the dish. I couldn't even taste the lemon or capers. It would be much better with traditional pasta - not as healthy but tastes good! Pros: Quick & easy - uses common ingredients Cons: Whole wheat pasta flavor is overwhelming
Long time to cook I made this dish for my husband last night and we hated it. The capers are not for us and it took much longer than 40 minutes to make this dish. I will not make this again. Pros: none Cons: it used up alot of dirty dishes took forever to cook and was not even worth it in the end
Delicious Dish We had this for dinner tonight. It was delicious! We will be having this again and again. It does create a lot of dirty dishes but the clean up is worth all the wonderful flavors in the dish. Pros: tasty filling low calorie very satisfying Cons: dirties up a lot of dishes big clean up afterwards
This was quite tasty. Took me a long time to cook...not sure why. Maybe because it took the sauce a long time to thicken so I actually had to add more flour than the recipe called for. It was really lemony but my family liked it. Next time I would reduce the amount of capers. But other than that I loved it!
Great Recipe! Although this took a little time to make I thought the dish was absolutely fabulous! And actually as the dish sat on the stove the sauce thickened up making it even better. The flavor of the chicken stock and the lemon juice was delicious. I was very happy with this recipe! Thank you for sharing!
Pleasantly surprised I didn't have the white wine or capers but it turned out really good. I substituted the capers for green peas and it worked out fine. I will definitely make this again Pros: Easy to make Cons: none
Yummy healthy and Easy This is definitely a dish I would make again. I did increase the sauce by half which I would recommend doing but other than that the recipe is great. Very tasty and extremely easy to make.
This did not turn out well... I am new to cooking but I've been able to do many of the recipes featured on eatingwell and manage to turn out a half decent meal. This required a lot of ingredients a lot of time and it turned out terrible. Of the 30-some meals I've tried on this site this was by far the worst. Perhaps it was just me but I would just say not to make it unless you're an experienced cooker. Cons: Lots of Ingredients Complicated Tasted Poor
This is one of my husband's favorite dishes...and he does not mind that it is healthy. My husband called it "Vacation Food." He said he flet like it was something special...and out better than the norm at our house. I was a happy wife-cook. Christy Crestview Fl
My husband is not crazy about chicken dishes but he loved this one & wants to eat it again. This was easy & quick to prepare. I used chicken tenders and a mix of whole wheat spaghetti and linguine since that's what I had on hand. Judie
Very good. Used chicken tenders instead of cutlets- added extra garlic and mushrooms because they are family favorites. Had to add a little flour to the roux to get it to thicken. Made a side salad with baby spinach leaves fresh strawberries and walnuts. Dressing was blended strawberries honey and sea salt. Great dish to serve with the chicken. Will make again! Cathi Corpus Christi TX
My husband loved this & asked that I make it again & he is not normally a lover of anything with chicken in it. I did not have capers so substituted chopped kalamata olives. This dish was even better as leftovers the next day. Great flavor. Judie Tigard OR
This was a fabulous recipe that my whole family loves including three under 4. I like that it didn't have the overwhelming butter flavor that this dish usually sports. Easy to make with most things you have around the house. Jennifer Monument CO
I have used this recipe twice the second time I used a combo of both wheat and egg noodles. Our family preferred the thicker texture of the egg noodles. Also I did not add the salt and added two more small fresh garlic cloves. Cathy Centralia WA
Absolutely delicious....& as usual I do not change anything in a recipe the first time however I used regular chicken breast halves instead of cutlets...& wasn't into pounding. Very light piquant flavor. The dish was equally delicious the next day as well covered/reheated in the oven @ 350 for about 20 minutes. Definitely a keeper for us! Jacqueline Buffalo NY
Wow!!! This was such a great meal it left my family thinking i picked it up at a local Itialian Resturant. It was easy to make i didn't use Capers or butter kept it kinda healthy! Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!! Danielle Madrigal Ontario CA
I found this to be easy to prepare and well within the time specified. I used prepared this meal exactly as the recipe indicated. It was delicous!!! A definite keeper for my recipe file. Kathy Odessa DE
This was a great recipe for a crowd especially with a side of stir-fried zucchini and carrots w/ basil and parsley. However... the preparation time was just over an hour not counting slicing all the veggies ahead of time with the food processor. Kristine Honolulu HI
This was absolutely fantastic! I felt like I was eating at a nice Italian restaurant. It had a great amount of lemon flavor and the light breading on the chicken made me feel like I was splurging when it is a quite healthy meal. This is a great idea for entertaining and it was fun to make! Leslie Los Angeles CA
This is one of my favorite EatingWell recipes. Absolutely delicious -- I can hardly tell a difference from the real thing. It's not the quickest meal I've ever prepared (but still doable on a weeknight) but it's well worth the effort. I wouldn't suggest saving it as leftovers (the coating on the chicken doesn't hold up so well when cooled and reheated) so make sure you have enough people to help you finish it all:) Jen Baltimore MD
I used combination of multi-grain and regular pasta instead I added lots of extra mushrooms because we love mushrooms. I didn't use any butter - instead used olive oil which turned out just fine. Added in zucchini as suggested. Husband really enjoyed it can't wait to make it again! Diane Ontario CA
Very nice dish--"Creamy" without the cream. Not as lemony as I expected. My wife says she doesn't like capers so I minced them before adding--she loved the flavor. Sauteed zucchini side was nice. Rob K. Niagara ON
This is my fav recipe on the site. It's easy delicious and healthy- the best combo. I skip the mushroom step and have either steamed broccoli or spinch on the side just because I like my plate to have some green. I love the sauce with these veggies.
I'm a foodie and under the general assumption that healthy food lacks flavor. This is a lightened up version of a favorite that is actually delicious. My husband and I loved it - actually even more than our old gourmet version. It is definitely a keeper. Oh and I should mention that all of our recipes end up with notes about how to make them better the next time we make it. Not this one. It's perfect the way it is! Don't even hesitate on trying it.
This recipe was sooo good. No trouble making the sauce. I used sliced baby Bella mushrooms and substituted the capers for sundried tomatoes. It was greaat! Nice flavor with the wine and lemon and mushrooms.
I had to do some tweaking to this recipe so my family would eat it. I added 1 cup of frozen peas and 1/4 cup grated Parmesian cheese. After tasting the sauce I had to add more broth and wine to dilute the lemon flavor which was way too strong. I also cut the capers down to 1 tbsp. and diced them first. I will make this gain but only with the modifications.
This is my favorite dinner. This is a great starting recipe as well. I have made it enough now that I add more lemon and capers based on my tastes. I also just grill my chicken with no flour. But this is a great revision of a potentially very unhealthy dish.
I'm doing something I NEVER do which is comment on a recipe without trying it. Actually I'm not really. I just wanted to say to the person who thought it was too lemony - I don't know if you were using bottled lemon juice - it is much much stronger that a lemon. (my rating doesn't count because I haven't tried it)
Need to double or triple the sauce for 1lb of pasta. Used panko instead of flour on the cutlets. this would be great with shrimp thrown in the sauce instead of using chicken cutlets. Very lemmony and yummy!
Great recipe! We did not use the wine recommended used broth instead and it turned out well. I am sure that we will make this again. Feels like we are making a more healthy choice compared to original version
I enjoyed this recipe very much. I'm not usually a big fan of capers but they do make a nice mustard-y flavor...in fact it might be a bit boring without them. As with all my recipes I OD-ed on the garlic (yum!) and forgot to remove the mushrooms before adding the wine & garlic but no harm there. I may have reduced my sauce too far because based on my impression of the recipe there should have been more once the 1/2 cup was removed. That and I think using a whole pound of chicken overwhelmed the quantity of noodle and sauce. I think you'd be safe making this with 1/2 - 3/4 lbs chicken. Will make again.
My family loved this! However I did make a few alterations to the recipe First of alI I had almost 2lbs of chicken so I doubled the recipe. I then butterflied pounded out and cut the breasts into fourths. I left out white wine because I didn't have any added cornstarch to thicken the sauce and put in some asparagus for more veggies. At first I thought that the sauce may be too sour from all the lemon juice but when finished it has a well-balanced flavor. This recipe turned out to be delicious and I will definitely be making it again sometime!
My family loved this recipe. However I did make a few alterations to it. I had almost 2lbs of chicken so I doubled the recipe. First off I butterflied pounded and cut the breasts in fourths. I left out the white wine because I didn't have any at home added some cornstarch to thicken the sauce and put in asparagus just to have more veggies.

This recipe is delicious and I will definitely be making it again sometime!
OMG this was delicious!! It was quite simple to make as well as cheap but it tasted like food from a really good restaurant. My boyfriend absolutely loved this. He actually ate slowly for once. He said he didn't want it to end.
My Fiance and I don't really watch what we eat carefully so we did not use the whole grain angel hair we just used the regular angel hair pasta and we thought this recipe was wonderfully light and simplistic with a lot of flavor. Admission I did change it a bit. I added more garlic and a little less lemon since my fiance does not care for lemon. I kept some lemon juice on the side to add to my portions. I also added thin slices of zuchinni and summer squash one whole one of each. This really added a lot of color and another dimension. I added these veggies with the mushrooms. I also added quite a bit more liquid to the dish. I more than doubled both the chicken broth and the wine went mostly by sight. I didn't add the capers don't like them and I only added about 1/4 of flour even though I doubled the liquid and let it reduce on the stove for a longer period of time. These are slight changes to me because I know our tastes but it turned out wonderful and we had dinner that night and enough for left overs for the second night. I would suggest if you do make it for 2 people and want left overs to add extra liquid because it seems a bit stingy otherwise.
There's a reason there are so many positive reviews for this recipe - it's completely delicious and super easy to make even for a novice chef like me. Like most posters I also had a heavy hand with the garlic (thumbs up) and used white pasta instead of whole wheat (although I'm sure it's delicious both ways). I made it with portobellos - I definitely recommend doing this. The sauce is incredibly flavorful and fresh tasting and not heavy like most pastas. I followed the recommended recipe quantities to the letter and my boyfriend and I loved it so much we finished the whole pot. I will definitely make this recipe again - I can't wait to try it with some peas and chopped prosciutto. Additionally a commenter suggested making it with asparagus - also sounds yummy. A great tasty easy and inexpensive recipe everyone would enjoy!!!
Awesome!! I made this last night for dinner. I am a beginner when it comes to cooking but this was easy and so delicious. I left out the capers and added sauteed broccoli with the mushrooms. My boyfriend said it was the best meal I have ever cooked to date! Also I didn't used lemon pepper instead of salt and I thought that was a lot better than adding any salt to it.
Tweaked it a bit but still great. I took out the capers and parsley. I used non-fat cooking spray instead of oil. The lemon was a bit strong so I added a tsp. of brown sugar and a tbls. of low-sodium soy sauce. My husband and I loved it!
Good Recipe This will definately go into my healthy recipe file. As a diabetic anything white is like eating sugar so I used organic whole wheat flour instead of white and spelt pasta. Pros: Easy to make Cons: Prefer W/W unbleached Flour to White
I can't decide if it's worth the hassle... I've made this twice now and am still mixed on whether or not we love it or it's just "pretty good." It takes longer to prep everything than the recipe says over an hour at least. It does need a little more sauce than stated but definitely not double the sauce. The caper taste is pretty strong so if you're not sure about those I'd recommend adding a little bit at a time and doing a taste test. I made once with capers and once without. If I made this again with the capers I'd only use half of what is stated in the recipe. It does have a nice flavor combination and we did enjoy it. But I just can't decide if it's worth all of the work.
amazing - can't believe it is the healthy alternative I have cooked this twice both time omitting the capers (couldn't locate any at the store) and it was still great. I just love the lemony taste. This is a definitely a keeper. After you make it once and if you have everything already prepped - it doesn't take a terribly long time Pros: tastes just like a gourmet restaurant dish Cons: none
