Easy Chicken Scaloppine
- Ready In:
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1⁄2 red onion, Thinly Sliced (About 1 Cup)
- 10 ounces white mushrooms, Sliced (About 3 Cups)
- 2 medium garlic cloves, Minced (about 1 teaspoon)
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon dried sage
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 -2 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 -2 tablespoon butter or 1 -2 tablespoon margarine
- 1⁄4 cup balsamic vinegar or 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 8 ounces angel hair pasta, Cooked
- fresh basil leaf
- lemon wedge
- In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onion; saute until softened, about 2 minutes. Add mushrooms and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables are softened and lightly browned, 10-15 minutes. Cover and remove from heat; set aside.
- Rinse chicken breast halves under cold water; pat dry with paper towels. On a cutting board, cut each piece in half. Place between sheets of waxed paper; using a rolling pin, pound and roll chicken to 1/4 inch thickness.
- In a bowl, combine flour, sage, salt and pepper. Dredge chicken pieces in the mixture, shaking off excess.
- In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Cook chicken pieces, 4 or 5 at a time, until cooked through and lightly browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side; add additional oil and butter, if necessary. Transfer chicken to a plate.
- Add balsamic vinegar to the skillet; increase heat to medium-high heat and cook, stirring, to loosen any browned bits from the bottom and sides of the skillet, about 1 minute.
- Return chicken and pan juices to the skillet; reduce heat to low and turn medallions once or twice to baste them in the sauce.
- Add cooked pasta to the skillet with the vegetables, tossing to combine; warm over low heat until heated through, about 4 minutes.
- Transfer pasta and vegetables to a platter. Arrange the chicken medallions on the platter next to the pasta and vegetables; garnish with fresh basil leaves and lemon wedges. Serve immediately.

Not issuing an official rating, because I didn't follow the directions in the end and don't know how that would've turned out. Instead, I made roasted garlic mashed potatoes to serve it on, I didn't cut the chicken in half (though I did remove the tenders and cook them separately), and I mixed the veggies (shallots as well as red onion) in the balsamic sauce after coating the chicken with it. Normally, I would have doubled the balsamic, but I only had 1/4 c, so I used chicken broth for extra liquid. Next time, I'll make sure I have enough vinegar. I can't say I thought this was as good as my last recipe (4000 miles away in a box), but it'll do for now. Thanks!
My family loved this recipe. I used about 1 Tbls Balsamic vinegar and added about 3/4 cup chicken broth. I thickened the sauce. Next time I will double the sauce mixture and pour it all over the pasta. I served Baked Corn Casserole #36673, it was outstanding, but it really did not go with this meal. Next time I will make this with grilled chicken.
