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.
Chicken Piccata with Pasta & Mushrooms
From EatingWell: January/February 2008
Our chicken piccata, served over whole-wheat pasta, has a rich lemon-caper sauce that's made with extra-virgin olive oil and just a touch of butter for flavor. If you like, you can use a mild fish like tilapia or even shrimp instead of chicken breast.

I made this for my family and we did not like it at all.
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'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.
