Chicken Piccata with Pasta & Mushrooms

January/February 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4 (605 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.

Easy and great as leftovers!

This was such a tasty and easy dish to make! I had read it was a little bland, so I added a heaping 1/4 cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese and crushed red pepper to the sauce. I also rinsed the capers before adding them to cut down on the briney taste. It came out great!

simple recipe, freezes well

author needs to look up the definition of Piccata.

Author needs to look up the definition of Piccata. It means SPICY! Nothing in this recipe suggest that. It is not a bad dish; however, it is not being sold the right way.

easy to make

Wonderfully yummy!

Hubby loved this and asked me to keep the recipe so I could make it again. He loves calamari and is anxious to try this sauce with it, but enjoyed the chicken tremendously! I'm not much of a chef but this made me look like one!

Fairly forgiving -- Did not use exact amounts

I was very disappointed in this recipe. The ingredients sounded wonderful but when put together just did not taste
good. Someone else mentioned a briny taste and that about says it.
