Start the potatoes
On 1 sheet pan, toss the potatoes with 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Spread in an even layer and roast until just tender, 15 to 20 minutes (they will finish roasting in Step 3).
While the potatoes roast, prepare the chicken.
Prep and cook the chicken
- Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; cut each breast in half horizontally to form 2 cutlets, for a total of 4  cutlets. Season the cutlets generously with salt and pepper.
- Set aside 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] flour for the piccata sauce. On a plate or shallow bowl, season the remaining flour generously with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer.
While the chicken cooks, prepare the zucchini and finish the potatoes.
Roast the zucchini; smash the potatoes
- Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise; cut each half lengthwise into thirds, then crosswise into 2-inch lengths.
- In a small bowl, stir together the Parmesan, garlic-herb blend, and as many chile flakes as you like.
Remove the potatoes from the oven. Using the bottom of a cup, gently smash the potatoes until the skins break and toss with 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil. Roast until the potatoes and zucchini are tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
While the vegetables roast, prepare the piccata sauce.
Make the piccata sauce
- Rinse the capers, then coarsely chop them.
- Zest and juice the lemon, keeping the zest and juice separate. [Zest both lemons; juice 1 lemon. Save the remaining zested lemon.]
- Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. Set aside half for garnish.
Remove from the heat, stir in the lemon zest and half the parsley, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the chicken and cook over medium heat until warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes.
- Brush the zucchini with oil and season.
- Juice the lemon.
- Strip the parsley leaves.
- Measure the water for the piccata sauce.
- Garnish with the parsley.
