  • OMG. My kids love chicken Picatta, and it takes a bit more prep than I like, but this recipe is now on our permanent rotation! We substituted Quinoa penne pasta, and used heavy whipping cream, but followed everything else exactly! The kids asked for the leftovers in their lunchbox tomorrow! A++ - 1/26/16

  • This is now a family favorite! They continually ask for it & we usually have it with sourdough french bread. Love it! - 5/5/08
