Best Italian Chicken Recipes

This Italian chicken recipe is comfort food at it's best.

HOMEMADE CHICKEN CARBONARA RECIPE

1/2 lb bacon
3 to 4 cups chicken, cut into strips
1 small onion, chopped


1 tsp homemade garlic powder
1 tsp homemade onion powder

Sauce
2-1/2 cups whipping cream
1 tsp homemade garlic powder
1 tsp homemade onion powder
8 egg yolks
1 cup parmesan cheese, grated (not powder)
1/4 cup fresh basil or 3 TBS dried basil
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

4 oz fettuccine or spaghetti noodles

In a large heavy skillet, fry bacon until cooked (not crispy); drain and set aside. Fry the chicken strips and onion in the bacon fat until meat is cooked through. Drain well. Discard the bacon fat.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the pasta. (I always put a teaspoon or two of canola or vegetable oil in the water so the pasta doesn't stick together.)

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan or dutch oven, whisk the sauce ingredients together and slowly heat to medium-low (no higher or the eggs will scramble).

When the meat/onion mixture and pasta is cooked and drained well, add that to the sauce ingredients. Cook until it is thickens and season with more salt and pepper if you need to.

Serve with a salad and crusty butter bread.



Homemade Chicken Piccata Recipe


This Italian chicken recipe has the best of both worlds; chicken and lemon.

HOMEMADE CHICKEN PICCATA RECIPE

2 TBS butter
2 TBS oil
4 large skinless, boneless chicken breasts
juice from one fresh lemon, divided in half
zest from the same lemon


1/4 cup flour
1 tsp homemade garlic powder
1/2 tsp homemade onion powder
1/4 tsp paprika

Sauce:
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 of the fresh lemon juice
2 TBS cornstarch or flour
1/4 cup water

Serve over buttered angel hair pasta.

PREHEAT the oven to 250 degrees.

Pound the chicken breasts until flattened.

Add the butter and oil in a heavy skillet on medium high. While it's heating up, combine the flour with the garlic powder, onion powder, lemon zest, paprika and place in a resealable bag.

Wet the chicken pieces in half of the lemon juice and place in the bag; shaking to coat evenly. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Fry in the skillet until golden brown and completely cooked; juices will be clear. Place the chicken in the oven on a baking sheet to keep warm while you make the sauce.

Bring the chicken broth and lemon juice to a boil in a saucepan. Whisk the cornstarch with the 1/4 cup of water and slowly add to the broth; whisking continuously until thickened.

To serve: place some of the buttered pasta on your plate and top with a chicken breast. Pour the lemon sauce over all.
