    Shawn C's Note:

    My brother-in-law is from Naples, Italy and he and my sister owned a Italian restaurant that I worked at for a little while. This was my absolute favorite dish and I often serve it now 2-3 times a month. Sometimes I add artichoke hearts. When I add the artichoke hearts I use a can of quartered artichokes and drain off the brine and add at the end just long enough to heat through!

      Exquisite recipe. I served this over some doctored up brown rice with bits of fresh vegetables. My DH and DS want me to make this " Chicky Franky " ( my DH can't pronounce it, so this is what he calls it now )at least twice a week. I wish I could give it far more than 5 stars, it's that pleasing. Thank you for sharing.

      This was a pretty tasty recipe. I did have to make a couple of changes though. I had to substitute red wine for white, and I was out of parsley. I think this recipe is a keeper!

      I really liked this one! and I used the artichoke hearts like in your comments. They wwere so tender! I did add extra garlic- loved the extra flavor it added. Didn't have any linguini but used vermicelli- still great though. Will have again, thanks for the recipe! Next time I might add some capers and have it in the true chicken picatta style.
