Chicken Piccata with Pasta & Mushrooms

January/February 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4 (569 votes)

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.

This was absolutely fantastic! I felt like I was eating at a nice Italian restaurant. It had a great amount of lemon flavor and the light breading on the chicken made me feel like I was splurging, when it is a quite healthy meal. This is a great idea for entertaining, and it was fun to make!

This is one of my favorite EatingWell recipes. Absolutely delicious -- I can hardly tell a difference from the real thing. It's not the quickest meal I've ever prepared (but still doable on a weeknight), but it's well worth the effort. I wouldn't suggest saving it as leftovers (the coating on the chicken doesn't hold up so well when cooled and reheated), so make sure you have enough people to help you finish it all :)

I used combination of multi-grain and regular pasta instead, I added lots of extra mushrooms because we love mushrooms. I didn't use any butter - instead used olive oil which turned out just fine. Added in zucchini as suggested. Husband really enjoyed it, can't wait to make it again!

Very nice dish--"Creamy" without the cream. Not as lemony as I expected. My wife says she doesn't like capers, so I minced them before adding--she loved the flavor. Sauteed zucchini side was nice.

Quite tasty, but I did miss the excessive butter often used in this dish. Was a bit time consuming to prepare and clean up.
