Chicken Piccata Skillet

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Chicken piccata is one of our all-time favorite meals. We both absolutely love it! Chicken Legs could eat it every week. I am always looking for new ways to prepare our favorite dishes. I am really into no-boil, one-pot dishes right now, so I decided to create a Chicken Piccata Skillet.

This was so easy and SO delicious! I used half of a cooked rotisserie chicken, and this only took a minute to prepare. It was a basically a dump recipe. The total cook time is less than 20 minutes. I seriously can't get enough of these kind of recipes, especially during the week! 

This dish was lick your plate delicious. Chicken Legs could have eaten the whole pan himself. He has already requested this again.

  • 12 oz cooked, chopped chicken (half a rotisserie chicken)
  • 2 cups chicken broth

  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 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.

  1. I'm guessing that the chicken broth goes in the same time everything else does? (not in the instructions) It sounds yummy.

  2. Yes Mary, the broth goes in with the pasta and heavy cream. I have made another recipe similar to this of hers. Super yummy!

  3. Will try this with canned chicken tonight. Thanks for the recipe. Linda @Wetcreek Blog

  4. This looks great! ( and so easy!) adding capers to the grocery list so I can make it this weekend :)

  5. Mary - yes, it goes in with everything else - I corrected the directions. Thanks!

  6. Your skillet pasta recipes are always SO good...I pin them all :) This one looks great.

  7. Is the pasta cooked before you mix it in with everything or after?

    1. The pasta cooks with everything in the skillet. Add it dry and it will cook in the broth.

  8. If you don't have chicken broth... is there anything else you can use? I have everything else...
