Recipe For Chicken Piccata with Angel Hair Pasta

Ingredients

1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, pounded thin and cut into 2-inch pieces
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup butter, divided
1 cup dry white wine
1/3 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons capers
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 (8 ounce) package angel hair pasta, cooked and drained

Directions

Whisk together flour, black pepper, and paprika in a shallow dish. Dredge the chicken pieces in the flour mixture, coating evenly; set aside. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; stir and cook the garlic until light brown, about 1 minute. Remove the garlic from the skillet and set aside.

Place 2 tablespoons of butter into the skillet with the olive oil. Cook the chicken pieces in the oil and butter over medium-high heat until brown, about 5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.

Pour the wine into the hot skillet and bring to a boil over high heat, scraping the browned pieces from the bottom and sides of the pan. Boil the wine until it is reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the chicken broth, reserved garlic, lemon juice and capers. Cook for 5 minutes over medium-high heat. Stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and parsley. Return the chicken pieces to the skillet and continue cooking over medium heat until the sauce thickens, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the angel hair pasta, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain well.

Remove the chicken pieces to a serving dish and drizzle with a few tablespoons of the sauce and capers. Place
