Oh PICCATA PASTA! What can I even say? We (mostly my carb-obsessed husband and daughter) heart this lightened-up, carb lovers spin on chicken piccata. It’s basic, it’s wonderful, and it all takes place in just one pot ???? ???? WINNING!

How you doin’, by the way?? I’m still trying to adjust to Fall. Having a hard time saying goodbye to warm weather. Nonetheless, I whipped out the orange and brown decor, but I have yet to decorate with it… I got pumpkins, too! AND, I also cooked up a bunch of stuff with butternut squash, including this Butternut Squash Lasagna. ????

So, clearly, I’m more than half way to welcoming the season.

Doesn’t this pot of Chicken Piccata Pasta also remind you of Fall? ME NEITHER! ???? Even so, there’s lemon in it and lemon is totally in-season.

If you’ve been hanging out with me for a while, you will know that I have a thing for cooking together a main dish + a side dish all in the same pot.

Case in point, this other One Pan Chicken Piccata and Rice. Also, One Pot Creamy Ziti with Andouille Sausage and MushroomsOne Pan Maple Mustard Chicken and Potatoes, OR this whole entire section of ONE POT MEALS. It’s how I roll and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Love these recipes! Thank you so much for going the extra mile in providing calorie breakdown with servings. But under this recipe, you show amount per serving of 1g??

    1. Hi! The calorie-counter does that automatically and I have tried to fix it, but there’s no way around it. It definitely is more than 1 gram though! hehe This recipe serves 4 people. Serving of pasta is 1 cup cooked. Serving of chicken is about 3 ounces, cooked. I hope that helps. 🙂

  2. Made this tonight for my family! Did not change the recipe at all, except for my husbands portion added red pepper flakes, he likes spicy! Delicious! We loved it and will make it again. Thank you!

  3. Hi Katerina,
    Love Piccata anything, but also would like to make it with 1lb spaghetti. Can I double the liquid portions of this
    recipe to accommodate 1lb pasta. Thanks for one pot wonders, that’s my speed.
    Robert

  4. I love one-pot meals like this for busy weeknights! I have been making some Indian dishes that are a one-pot style dish you build upon the flavors and then serve with some naan. So good! Thanks for the great recipe!
