Chicken Piccata Skillet

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.

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

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