Chicken Piccata with Pasta & Mushrooms

January/February 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4 (602 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.

OMG this was delicious!! It was quite simple to make as well as cheap, but it tasted like food from a really good restaurant. My boyfriend absolutely loved this. He actually ate slowly for once. He said he didn't want it to end.

Awesome! I tried it once for my boyfriend, who is a chef and he was so impressed (and he is hard to impress!) that he has asked for it over and over again. Thank you!

My family loved this! However, I did make a few alterations to the recipe First of alI, I had almost 2lbs of chicken so I doubled the recipe. I then butterflied, pounded out, and cut the breasts into fourths. I left out white wine because I didn't have any, added cornstarch to thicken the sauce, and put in some asparagus for more veggies. At first I thought that the sauce may be too sour from all the lemon juice, but when finished it has a well-balanced flavor. This recipe turned out to be delicious and I will definitely be making it again sometime!

My family loved this recipe. However, I did make a few alterations to it. I had almost 2lbs of chicken so I doubled the recipe. First off, I butterflied, pounded, and cut the breasts in fourths. I left out the white wine because I didn't have any at home, added some cornstarch to thicken the sauce, and put in asparagus just to have more veggies. At first I was worried about the sauce being too sour from the lemon juice, but it turned out to be well-balanced in flavor when finished. This recipe is delicious and I will definitely be making it again sometime!

I enjoyed this recipe very much. I'm not usually a big fan of capers, but they do make a nice mustard-y flavor...in fact, it might be a bit boring without them. As with all my recipes, I OD-ed on the garlic (yum!) and forgot to remove the mushrooms before adding the wine & garlic, but no harm there. I may have reduced my sauce too far because based on my impression of the recipe there should have been more once the 1/2 cup was removed. That, and I think using a whole pound of chicken overwhelmed the quantity of noodle and sauce. I think you'd be safe making this with 1/2 - 3/4 lbs chicken. Will make again.
