Chicken Piccata Fettuccine

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 20 mins

This recipe is a WINNER in my family! The sauce, light and tasty served over warm fettuccine will please everyone's palette. If you brine your chicken breast before, the meat will be even better and very very moist (BRINE: 8 cups water + 1/4 cup salt + chicken breasts. Let chicken marinate in water and salt for 4 hours or over night if you have the time, but 4 hours is fine for me)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rince chicken, melt oil in large skillet and brown chicken strips until golden.
  2. Finish cooking chicken in warm oven (300F) while preparing the sauce.

  5. In small bowl, mix corn starch with cold water until disolved. Pour in skillet, bring to a good simmer and whisk frequently until sauce thickens. Add chicken and cook for 5 minutes.

I used the suggestion to grind the meat and by doing that it was extremely salty, therefore the lower rating. I will try this again, but without that technique. I think this recipe would be fantanstic without the grinding. Other than being salty, the taste was really good.
