Chicken Piccata with Pasta and Mushrooms

This dish has a rich, lemon-caper sauce that compliments not only chicken, but would also work well with lean pork, such as medallions cut from a tenderloin roast. Serve with a lightly dressed side salad.


  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour, divided
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • ½ tsp. salt, divided
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • 4 chicken cutlets, trimmed
  • 3 tsp. olive oil, divided
  • 10 oz. mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 Tbsp. capers
  • 2 tsp. butter
  • 6 oz. whole-wheat angel hair pasta, cooked


  1. Whisk 5 teaspoons flour and broth in a small bowl until smooth.
  2. Place the remaining flour in a shallow dish. Season chicken with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper and dredge both sides in the flour. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned and no longer pink in the middle (2-3 minutes per side). Transfer to a plate; cover and keep warm.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in the pan over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring, until they release their juices and begin to brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add garlic and wine to the pan and cook until reduced by half, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the reserved broth-flour mixture, lemon juice and the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring, until the sauce is thickened (5 minutes).
  4. Stir in parsley, capers, butter and the reserved mushrooms. Measure out ½ cup of the mushroom sauce. Toss the pasta in the pan with the remaining sauce. Serve the pasta topped with the chicken and the reserved sauce.
