Chicken Piccata with Pasta & Mushrooms

January/February 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4 (649 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.

Tweaked it a bit, but still great.

I took out the capers and parsley. I used non-fat cooking spray instead of oil. The lemon was a bit strong, so I added a tsp. of brown sugar and a tbls. of low-sodium soy sauce. My husband and I loved it!

Oh, and a 1/4 tsp of sweet hungarian paprika.


I made this last night for dinner. I am a beginner when it comes to cooking, but this was easy and so delicious. I left out the capers and added sauteed broccoli with the mushrooms. My boyfriend said it was the best meal I have ever cooked to date!

Also, I didn't used lemon pepper instead of salt and I thought that was a lot better than adding any salt to it.

There's a reason there are so many positive reviews for this recipe - it's completely delicious and super easy to make, even for a novice chef like me. Like most posters, I also had a heavy hand with the garlic (thumbs up) and used white pasta instead of whole wheat (although I'm sure it's delicious both ways). I made it with portobellos - I definitely recommend doing this. The sauce is incredibly flavorful and fresh tasting, and not heavy like most pastas. I followed the recommended recipe quantities to the letter, and my boyfriend and I loved it so much we finished the whole pot. I will definitely make this recipe again - I can't wait to try it with some peas and chopped prosciutto. Additionally, a commenter suggested making it with asparagus - also sounds yummy. A great tasty, easy and inexpensive recipe everyone would enjoy!!!


Yum!! My husband and I loved it. The mushrooms and the capers made the meal. I'm sort new to the whole cooking thing, and this recipe was easy for me to follow. It was delicious indeed.
