A Really Big Recipe Box

Hello, friends & family~
Welcome to my RECIPE BOX blog! This is a little blog I created from the inspiration I got after watching the delightful motion picture Julie & Julia.
I wanted to create a place where anyone and everyone can exchange great recipes, entertaining ideas, and all their cooking successes and failures. New topics will be posted daily and I hope others will post their comments or ideas on these topics!
Each month there will be a different cooking/ingredient that is featured. I hope readers will enter their recipes and blog about their ideas regarding the different topics/monthly themes featured. Make sure you attach your name and city were you reside at the bottom of your recipe and photos if possible!

I know it's not technically a pasta dish but I serve it with pasts.....CHICKEN PICCATA! It's lemony and garlicy....what's not to love??

Chicken Piccata:
Season two chicken breasts with salt & pepper then dust with flour. Coat a saute pan with non stick cooking spray, add 2 Tbsp of veggie oil and heat over medium-high. Saute chicken breast for 2-3 min on one side. Flip the chicken breast over 1-2 more minutes. Transfer chicken to a warm plate, pour off fat from pan. Deglaze the pan with 1/4 C. white wine and add 1 tsp of minced garlic. Cook until garlic is slightly brown and liquid is nearly evaporated, about 2 min.
Add 1/2 C. of chicken broth, 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice and 1 Tbsp of capers, drained. Return chicken to pan and cook for another minute per side. Transfer chicken to warm plate again. Finish sauce with 2 Tbsp of butter and fresh lemon slices.
Cook 1 box of angel hair pasta in boiling water until slightly al dente. Drain pasta and toss in sauce and add chicken. Garnish with fresh chopped parsely! Enjoy!!!
