Chicken Piccata and Fettuccine with Lime Sauce

Published on September 8, 2012 | Pasta, Rice, Grains

lime sauce fettuccineWe always enjoy having friends over for dinner. Last night was a wonderful evening just of that, friends over, children playing, parents sharing a glass of wine and cooking dinner. As the evening was quite impromptu, we had just lemon- lime pasta with chicken piccata my way.


The original piccata requires lemon juice, however I just had one lemon and therefore used key-limes for the chicken as well as the pasta.  The flavor was uplifted with the lime, the pasta was light and fresh. Great alternative considering that lately I have more limes in the house than lemons.

Bon Appetit!
