Chicken with Artichokes and Angel Hair


Pantry staples, chicken, and fast-cooking pasta add up to an impressive 25-minute meal.

  • Prep:
  • Total Time:
  • Servings: 4

Source: Everyday Food, March 2009


  • 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.

  2. 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.

    This was super easy and quick to make. Family loved it. Thought the flavors went well. Probably would add a squeeze of lemon to the broth next time.

    This is going into the repertoire for a quick but delicious weeknight meal. Lots of bang for your buck here. I followed the recipe exactly, which I almost never do unless baking and it was delicious!!!

    My boyfriend is an extremely picky eater, and he loved this recipe--with some changes. Neither one of us like capers, so I didn't use any. Added Italian seasoning and parmesan, and we didn't have any angel hair so I used thin spaghetti instead. It was really good! Especially the chicken! I disagree with some of the comments about the chicken seasoning. All it needs it salt and pepper. I dredged the chicken in flour first and sprinkled on the salt and pepper afterwards.

    This is unbelievably good. I use basil instead of parsley, though, and I add white wine and a splash of cream to the sauce. LOVE IT!

    This was delicious! I did add lemon juice of about 1/2 a lemon, and some garlic powder and a little thyme as well to the chicken. I agree that the sauce disappears, and I even used a 14oz can of broth, which is more than the recipe calls for. Next time I will use 2 cans of broth. Or I will add some white wine next time. I think that would be fabulous in the sauce. I served this over brown rice to make it more healthy, with a side of sautéed green beans sprinkled with garlic powder.
