  2. In a separate dish, mix together the cornstarch and cold water. Stir the cornstarch mixture into the sauce and continue cooking until the sauce is thickened and bubbly, about 30 seconds.

a very good recipe, for more zip as one poster said it needed, use a white wine instead of chicken broth.

Although this recipe has a nice flavor and saves well for future use. it lacks the richness of a true picatta. I will use this in a pinch but probably not for guests.

Pretty Good. Needs a little more zip, but I always try to follow a recipe the first time around. Chopping the capers may have taken away from their tartness... which can be a good or bad thing, depending on your tastes! PERFECT consistency. *I made again, with no artichokes, and it was delicious! From now on I will probably skip them, since i rarely have them on hand!

Delicious! Perfect consistency for piccata sauce over angel hair! I didn't have any artichokes but I'm sure it will be delicious with those thrown in too!

This sauce tasted excellent. Served over Angel Hair Pasta.

This was alright. I will try other recipes before making this again.

I had no chicken broth and had to sub wine for this sauce, and it didn't say what kind of artichoke hearts to use, so I used Trader Joe's marinated hearts. I also added another little dab of butter to it when it was finished. I put this over chicken that I sautéed with butter and olive oil seasoned with Papa's Seasoning from this site and a little Tajin. We practically inhaled this dish! Very yummy and very easy, too. Yum!
