    I really am shocked that such a simple recipe is so awesome! For those who had dry chicken, you must have used too large of a pan. This is really fabulous -- even for the non-caper lovers. If you take the time to read the reviews you have to try this!!!! Thanks for the post!  -  10 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My husband thought this recipe was EXCELLENT!!! I recommend using Bobby Flay's Sherry Vinegar Steak Sauce! This recipe will be added to my family favorites!! Very good!  -  10 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delicious!!! Used A1, but reduced by half due to some comments I read about the A1 overpowering everything. Added some flour to thicken sauce. Will add even more flour next time, and stick with the A1 amount. A fantastic dish if you like capers! Will make again!  -  10 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
