Chicken Piccata Pasta Toss Recipe at
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.

Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook the penne according to package directions until al dente. Drain and set aside.

Season the chicken with salt and pepper, then dredge the chicken in flour, shaking off any excess. In a nonstick skillet over medium to medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon of oil and 1 tablespoon butter. Saute the chicken until browned on both sides and cooked through, about 3 or 4 minutes per side. Set aside in the warm oven.

Add 2 teaspoons of oil to the pan and saute the onion and garlic until the onion is lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon flour over the onions and saute, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the wine to the pan to deglaze, about 1 minute. Whisk in the lemon juice and chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Cook until slightly thickened, about 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the remaining tablespoon of butter, capers and 2 tablespoons of parsley. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Toss the cooked pasta into the sauce.

Plate the pasta then place a piece of chicken over each portion. Sprinkle with remaining parsley and serve with lemon wedges.

Delicious and easy!
I just love "piccata anything" and decided to make this last night. I followed the recipe except that after I cooked and rested the chicken I chopped it up and tossed it into the pasta and sauce. Delicious!! I think dry vermouth would be really good in it, and I may try that next time. I haven't tested it yet but I think this will also be good as a cold pasta salad and I'll be testing that theory later this week. Thanks for a super easy and delicious recipe!
