Chicken Piccata Fettuccine

"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)"

  1. Delicious!
  2. I think the author menat brine not grind.
  3. 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.
  4. To die for would be the right phrase for this one! Creamy, delicious, full of flavors that tickle your tongue... It's a winner anytime and great for company when you don't know what to make but would like to impress them!
  5. This is a meal right out of Heaven! We were literally on cloud 9 while eating. The flavors are "To Die For" and if you try it, you will see exactly what I mean! This has already very happily been added to my favorites, and the kids said they can't wait to have it again, so I have to make sure I have the recipe handy! I used Riesling wine for this and was glad I did. It was excellent!
