1/2 tsp. salt

2 - 2 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 Tbls. olive oil OR vegetable oil
8 oz. sliced fresh mushrooms

4 Tbls. capers (optional)
-In a 2-quart saucepan, boil wine until reduced by half. Add lemon juice
to pan, then whisk in butter until melted. Add 2 cups cream and simmer on
low heat until thickened, stirring often. Remove from heat, stir in
spices, and set aside.
-Pound chicken breasts with the flat side of a meat mallet or the bottom
of a glass until thin.
-Fill a large pot with water and begin to heat to boiling (for preparing
-Heat oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat; add chicken to
pan and sauté on each side for 60 – 90 seconds, or until chicken is cooked
through. Add mushrooms to pan and sauté with until mushrooms begin to
soften. Squeeze juice from both lemon halves over chicken and mushrooms;
pick out any seeds. Add 1/2 cup cream to pan and bring to a boil, stirring
often. Remove from heat; stir in artichokes, parsley, and prepared lemon
sauce; set aside and keep warm.
-Add pasta to boiling water and cook as directed on package.
-In a separate skillet or pan over medium-high heat, quickly sauté
pancetta and capers until pancetta is browned; remove from heat.
-On individual serving plates or one large platter, swirl portions of
drained pasta into “nest(s)”. Arrange chicken pieces in center of nest,
pour sauce/mushrooms over and around chicken, and then sprinkle
pancetta/capers evenly over all.
Notes: If desired, skip the pancetta and capers.
This layer does add flavor, but the dish will still be wonderful without
it. What I do is chop 4 slices of bacon and sauté them with the chicken
