I love Chicken Piccata!
It is a very light meal that has a punch of big flavor. It’s not a hard meal to make but it’s not the quickest to throw together either. So when I was on my usual daily quest for new time saving recipes I came across this recipe – Chicken Piccata Skillet Pasta and I thought – how can that be bad?!? It combines one of my favorite meals with pasta and in one pan!
You should know I must be taking this “my life is about to really change” to heart because I used to would have never considered using pre-cooked chicken but I did this time and let me tell you – I will do it again!
Chicken Piccata Skillet Pasta
(adapted from Plain Chicken)
- 12 oz cooked, chopped chicken ( I used the pre-cooked bags of Tyson grilled chicken you find in the refrigerated section)
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 Tbsp dried minced onion
- 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 8 oz pasta
- 3-4 Tbsp capers, drained and rinsed
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
In 12-inch skillet, combine chicken, pasta, onion, garlic, heavy cream, lemon juice, chicken broth and pasta. Bring to boil. Cover and reduce heat.
Simmer for 15-18 minutes, until pasta is tender. Stir in capers and parmesan cheese. Cook over low heat about 5 minutes.
So, so easy but oh so good!
