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


  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 8 thin chicken cutlets (about 1 ½ 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

  • ½ 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.
