Hubby's Favorite Chicken Scaloppine With Angel Hair Pasta

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

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!


  1. Trim chicken of all fat.
  2. Pound the chicken as thin as you prefer- the thinner, the better.
  3. Put a pot of water on to boil for the angel hair.
  4. Coat chicken in seasoned flour and shake off excess.
  5. Melt about half a stick of butter in a non-stick frying pan.
  6. Add chicken and cook until lightly browned on both sides and cooked all the way through.
  7. Cook pasta 2-3 minutes or according to package directions.
  8. Remove chicken from pan and place on serving plates.
  9. Melt the other half of the stick of butter in same pan with lemon juice to taste.
  10. Add drained pasta to pan and toss to coat.
  11. Place pasta on plates with chicken and pour any excess butter/lemon juice mixture over chicken and pasta.
  12. My hubby makes his OWN separate butter/lemon juice mixture for just his plate!

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.

We loved this recipe. I added a bit more seasoning than just salt and pepper. I added lemon pepper and a little cajan seasoning as well. At the end when you mix the butter and lemon juice, I also added a couple of cloves of minced garlic. Next time I am going to try to add a few sliced baby bella mushrooms. My hubby declared this his new favorite chicken dish. Thanks for the recipe.

Outstanding! My hubby and I LOVED this dish =D I did everything accordingly except for the flour. I used Italian Style Bread Crumbs instead =) Just lovely. I would probably incorporate a few herbs into the pasta next time (nothing wrong with it the way it is, I just love herbs). Thanks for a keeper ;)
