Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Piccata with Pasta & Mushrooms

8 ounces Whole Wheat Angel Hair Pasta
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 tbsp chicken broth
2 cups water
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 pounds chicken breasts, trimmed
3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
2 tbsp canola oil
10 ounce mushrooms, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced (clove)
1/2 cup white wine
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons capers, rinsed
2 teaspoons butter

Recipe Directions for Chicken Piccata with Pasta & Mushrooms

  1. 1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until just tender, 4 to 6 minutes or according to package directions. Drain and rinse.

  2. 2. Meanwhile, whisk 5 teaspoons flour and broth in a small bowl until smooth. Place the remaining flour in a shallow dish. Season chicken with 1/4 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 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate; cover and keep warm.

  3. 3. Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon 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 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring, until the sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes.

  4. 4. Stir in parsley, capers, butter and the reserved mushrooms. Measure out 1/2 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.
