About the music: This dish is delicious, I mean really delicious. So to put it simply, we just wanted to match the awesomeness of this recipe with some equally stellar tunes. Nothing fancy, just like the dish. We start off with a personal favorite, The Menahan Street Band, continue of with a little Ali Love and then make a nice Crazy P finish. That’s it, enjoy.
Cook time: 25 minutes
3 chicken breasts, butterflied and pounded thin
salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoon butter
2 clove garlic, chopped
1/3 cup dry white wine
2/3 cup chicken broth
1 lemon, juice
1 teaspoon honey
3 tablespoons capers
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
How ever much pasta your heart desires
This recipe is pretty simple and if you execute it properly, which isn’t very hard, it is down right delicious. To get things started, fill a pot with water and heat it up, you can always have it boil lightly if your not ready to put the pasta in when the water starts to boil. Next, put about one tablespoon of oil and half of the allotted butter into a pan and get it nice and hot over medium heat.
While this is happening, lightly dredge your chicken in flour and fry it in the pan until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes a side. Unless you have a really enormous pan, you may need to do this in two rounds (this is where the rest of the oil and 1 more tablespoon of butter come into play). Once all of the chicken is cooked through, it’s probably time for that spaghetti to take a bath in the boiling water. Throw the chopped garlic into the pan and saute it for about a minute, until fragrant. Then pour your wine into the pan and deglaze it…like Randy Marsh.
Add the broth, honey, capers and lemon juice to the pan and bring the mixture to a simmer. Let it all simmer down nicely until it has reduced by about half, about 3-5 minutes, and then add your chopped parsley and remaining butter to the pan and give it a nice little stir. Lastly, your going to put the chicken back in the pan, once the heat is off, and toss it around in the delicious mixture.
Hopefully you remembered to take your pasta out of the boiling water cuz it’s time for plating. Lay down a nice portion of pasta on the plate, top it with a chicken breast, and smother it all in sauce. There, you’re done, and by god your about to be amazed with how tasty it is.
