Chicken with Artichokes and Angel Hair

Sometimes I think that I must get a different version of Everyday Food as everyone else. It will come in the mail, and I'll go through it and tear out what I think I like. And then sure enough, I'll see on someone's blog a recipe that I somehow completely missed!

Thanks to Reservations Not Required, I got a second chance to make this awesome chicken dish. I did take note of her disappointment in rinsing the capers and artichokes; I was a bit afraid to have too powerful of a taste, so I did still rinse, but just briefly. Perfect.

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 8 thin chicken cutlets (about 1 1/2 pounds total)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 can (14 ounces) artichoke hearts packed in water, rinsed, drained, and quartered
  • 2 tablespoons rinsed and drained capers
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8 ounces angel-hair pasta
  • 1/2 cup parsley leaves
1. Set a large pot of salted water to boil. Place flour in a shallow dish, and season with salt and pepper. Dredge cutlets, shaking off excess. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Cook chicken in batches, adding remaining oil as needed, until light golden, 1 to 3 minutes per side; transfer to a dish.

Add broth to skillet, and bring to a boil; cook until reduced by half. Add artichokes, capers, and the chicken with any juices. Gently swirl to combine, and bring just to a boil. Remove skillet from heat. Swirl in butter, and cover to keep warm.

3. Add pasta to boiling water. Cook until al dente; drain. Serve chicken and sauce over pasta, topped with parsley.


  1. Looks great, I will have to try this!

  2. I'm so glad you liked it! Your photo and presentation is gorgeous. I think I will take your hint and do a light rinse of the capers and artichokes next time. I rinsed mine a little too well I think!

  3. Looks delicious! This reminds me I have some capers I need to use!

  4. I seriously LOOOOVE artichokes. I'm starring this to try. It looks fabulous!

  5. I made this and thought it was amazing. So easy too!
