Chicken Piccata with a side of Pasta


This has to be one of the quickest and easiest dinners to put together.  On the table in less than 30 minutes.  I defrosted boneless chicken breasts to cook Friday but by the time I got home from work I wasn't in the mood so I made a pot of Potato Leek soup instead.  That still left the chicken breasts for last nights dinner.

I walked in the door, put a put a pot of water on to boil for pasta, pounded out the chicken breasts, added a tablespoon or so of green peppercorns to half a cup of chicken broth (so they could soften) and made chicken piccata for dinner with pasta on the side. On the table in 30 minutes.  It took the water longer to boil then it did to make the whole dinner.    The pasta was what was left of the homemade batch I made a week or two ago.  I had dried half of it.

  9. I usually order the chicken picatta at our favorite Italian restaurant.
    I am looking forward to snooping around your site. My sister lives in Maple Bay and her daughter is in Duncan too. I love driving past the farms around there when I come over from the mainland.

  11. Love the "print recipe" feature. It's so convenient and a terrific feature for people who visit your blog.

    Chicken piccata. Beautifully presented, and one of my favorites. Haven't made it in ages. Now that I'm eyeing yours with great envy, I'm going to have to make it soon.

  12. Thanks for commenting. Looks like Chicken Piccata is a favourite of everyone. I know that capers are traditional but having never been a big caper fan I started using green peppercorns.

    Katy, thanks for the feedback on the "Print recipe". I'll try to remember to use that feature every time I add a recipe.
