Serves 2*


  • Coarse salt and ground pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour or gluten free flour
  • 4 thin chicken cutlets (about 3/4 pounds total)
  • 2 tablespoons STAR Italian Cuisine Cooking Oil
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 jar (14.75 ounces) Cara Mia Artichoke Hearts packed in water, rinsed, drained, and
  • quartered
  • 2 tablespoons rinsed and drained STAR Non Pareil Capers 
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 ounces angel-hair pasta
  • 1/2 cup parsley leaves for garnish
Start by setting a medium pot of salted water to boil for the pasta.

Place flour in a shallow dish, and season with salt and pepper. Dredge cutlets, shaking off excess. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. 

Cook chicken in batches, in the skillet, adding remaining oil as needed, until light golden, 1 to 3 minutes per side; transfer to a dish.

Add broth to skillet, and bring to a boil; cook until reduced by half. Add artichokes, capers, and the chicken with any juices. Gently swirl to combine, and bring just to a boil. Remove skillet from heat. Swirl in butter, and cover to keep warm.

Add pasta to boiling water. Cook until al dente; drain. Serve chicken and sauce over pasta, topped with parsley.

About Me

Cara Mia
Cara Mia brand was started by an artichoke grower co-op in 1955, in the “artichoke capital” of the world, Castroville, CA. The co-op opened as a freezer operator with the intent of providing consumers another means to enjoy the edible thistle all year around. The venture proved so successful that a marinating line was added in 1958. Soon sales of the marinated produce far surpassed the frozen line as consumers enjoyed the proprietary marinade that dressed the tender leaves. The Borges Group acquired Cara Mia and its proprietary spice mix/marinade recipe in 2001. Today Cara Mia is the #1 selling brand of marinated artichokes. Look for them, and the other Cara Mia marinated vegetable items, in the Produce Dept.
