Hubby's Favorite Chicken Scaloppine With Angel Hair Pasta

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by jbe467

My mom made this for my husband and he begs for it to this day! Not one of my personal favorites, but I'm not a big chicken fan. My kids love this dish as much as he does though, so I have to make it pretty frequently around here!

I loved this chicken dish! The chicken I used came pacakged already thin sliced and ready to cook. I made this on a work night and dinner was on the table in less then 1/2 hour. The only thing I wasn't sure of was how much lemon juice to use so I only used a small amount, just under two tablespoons. This amount was just right. Everyone in my family enjoyed this meal. I will be making this again.
