Ingredients

6 ounces angel hair pasta
cup all-purpose flour
divided
2 cups chicken broth, low salt
reduced-sodium
½ teaspoon salt
divided
¼ teaspoon black pepper
freshly ground
*
4 chicken cutlets
trimmed
*
3 teaspoons olive oil, extra-virgin
divided
10 ounces mushrooms
sliced
3 large garlic cloves
minced
*
½ cup white wine
*
2 tablespoons lemon juice
¼ cup parsley leaves
chopped fresh
2 tablespoons capers
rinsed
2 teaspoons butter

Directions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

Add pasta and cook until just tender, 4 to 6 minutes or according to package directions.

Drain and rinse.

Meanwhile, whisk 5 teaspoons flour and broth in a small bowl until smooth.

Place the remaining flour in a shallow dish.

Season chicken with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper and dredge both sides in the flour.

Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.

Add the chicken and cook until browned and no longer pink in the middle, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Transfer to a plate; keep warm.

Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in the pan over medium-high heat.

Add mushrooms and cook, stirring, until they release their juices and begin to brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Add garlic and wine to the pan and cook until reduced by half, 1 to 2 minutes.

Stir in the reserved broth-flour mixture, lemon juice and the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring, until the sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes.

Stir in parsley, capers, butter and the reserved mushrooms. Measure out ½ cup of the mushroom sauce.

Toss the pasta in the pan with the remaining sauce.

Serve the pasta topped with the chicken and the reserved sauce.
