Total Time:
1 hrs 5 mins


  • cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon paprika

  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, pounded thin and cut into 2-inch pieces

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided

  • 1 cup dry white wine

  • cup chicken broth

  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons capers

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 (8 ounce) package angel hair pasta, cooked and drained


  1. Whisk flour, pepper, and paprika together in a shallow dish. Dredge chicken in flour mixture until evenly coated.

  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic; cook and stir until golden and fragrant, about 1 minute; transfer to a plate.

  3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in the same skillet. Add chicken and cook until browned, about 5 minutes per side; transfer to a plate.

  4. Pour wine into the hot skillet and bring to a boil over high heat, scraping the browned bits from the bottom and sides of the pan with a wooden spoon. Boil until wine is reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Whisk in chicken broth, reserved garlic, lemon juice, and capers; cook for 5 minutes. Stir in parsley and remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Reduce the heat to medium, return chicken to the skillet, and continue cooking until sauce thickens, about 15 minutes.

  5. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook angel hair pasta in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain well.

  6. Transfer chicken pieces to a serving dish and drizzle with a few tablespoons sauce. Add cooked pasta to the skillet and toss to coat with remaining sauce.

  7. Portion noodles onto serving plates and top with chicken.
