Chicken Piccata with Pasta & Mushrooms

January/February 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4 (651 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.

My family doesn't like mushrooms, so I looked at the photo and substituted peeled sliced organic zucchini. It was delicious. I use chicken breasts sliced lengthwise and pounded thin. We love this one.

Pleasantly surprised

I didn't have the white wine or capers, but it turned out really good. I substituted the capers for green peas and it worked out fine. I will definitely make this again

Easy to make

I read a lot of reviews complaining about the effort/prep involved and I just didn't find that. I even deboned my own breasts - it was delish and my wife loved it :)

Yummy, healthy, and Easy

This is definitely a dish I would make again. I did increase the sauce by half which I would recommend doing but other than that the recipe is great. Very tasty and extremely easy to make.

This did not turn out well...

I am new to cooking, but I've been able to do many of the recipes featured on eatingwell and manage to turn out a half decent meal. This required a lot of ingredients, a lot of time, and it turned out terrible. Of the 30-some meals I've tried on this site, this was by far the worst. Perhaps it was just me, but I would just say not to make it unless you're an experienced cooker.
