Fettuccine with Chicken Piccata Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup all-purpose flour
  • Salt to taste
  • 400 Grams Chicken (use skinless chicken breast fillet), sliced crosswise into 1/4 inch thick pieces
  • 3/4 Cup olive oil
  • 3/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons Butter divided
  • 2 teaspoons onion chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic chopped
  • 2 tablespoons white wine
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 Cup capers
  • 1/4 Cup chicken stock
  • 200 Grams fettuccine noodles cooked according to package directions, reserve some of the cooking water
  • parsley sprigs Chopped, for garnish
  • 1 lemon sliced into thin rounds


  • Mix together flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl. Lightly dredge chicken in mixture. Shake off excess flour.
  • Cook chicken in olive oil and butter in a large pan over medium-high heat until golden brown, about 1½ to 2 minutes per side. Cook chicken in batches, using 2 tablespoons butter per batch (¾ cup butter total), to avoid overcrowding pan. Set chicken aside and keep warm.
  • Sauté onions and garlic in the same pan. Add white wine and bring to a boil. Allow to simmer until wine reduces to half, about 2 minutes.
  • Add lemon juice, capers, and chicken stock. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to simmer. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add chicken and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
  • Whisk remaining 3 tablespoons butter into the sauce. Add cooked pasta; mix well and season with salt and pepper. Add some of the pasta cooking water to the sauce to thicken it.
  • Transfer pasta to a serving dish. Top with chicken and garnish with parsley. Serve lemons on the side.
