Chicken Scaloppine over Broccoli Rabe

    Very good and simple. I can never find chicken cutlets, so unless I'm angry and want to pound on something (lol) I buy turkey cutlets instead and reduce the cook time. Chicken tenderloins also work well. I've never liked broccoli rabe so I use either regular broccoli or spinach. This is a staple recipe for me!

    Tasty and easy - maybe not the advertised 15 minutes for the whole meal start to finish, but aside from a thin frozen pizza or maybe hotdogs, nothing gets on the table that fast for me! I would categorize as a fast entree in general though. Served with curly fries (for the kids' sake) and sauteed kale (don't really like bitter greens like broccoli rabe). Easy and delicious weeknight supper.

    I cut the broccoli rabe from this recipe because scaloppine broccoli rabe doesn't appeal to me. The scaloppine chicken was very, very good and I'm sure I'll often be making this recipe in the future. With the exception of skipping the broccoli rabe, I followed the recipe to the letter. I served it with Oven-roasted Potatoes and Carrots with Thyme (Sunset April 2007) and steamed broccoli. It was a lovely meal. I think I'll next try this recipe with a pasta side.

    This turned out very flavorful and moist. I paired it with sauteed spinach instead of broccoli rabe and it was a nice combination. Will definitely make this again for a simple healthy meal.

    Loved the chicken cooked with the Italian breadcrumbs...my kids did too. The sauce was not good too lemony and thin. Just steam your broccoli and serve the chicken.

    The chicken in this recipe was just too bland for my boyfriend and I. I substituted broccolini for the rabe, and with the sauce on it, that part was fantastic. I also made roasted red potatoes to go with. Just not something I see myself making again, though.

    This was a great meal for 3 hungry teenage boys. Quick and easy!

    Simple and good for everyday dinner meals. Contrary to the other reviews, I thought the chicken was quite tasty especially if the chickens are pounded to pretty thin pieces. I put less capers. Since broth from the grocery store is expensive, I used half a chicken cube and mixed it in hot water. I do'nt konw what is broccoli rabe and there was none in the store at our area, so I just used brocollini. It tastes better than brocolli and can achieve that tender yet crunchy stems. Served with mashed potatoes. My husband liked it, and probably will make it again when on a budget/time constraint.

    this was quick and easy. I added garlic powder, basil and oregano to the breadcrumbs (otherwise it would be bland.) I grew up with rappini and love it! However, it's too bitter for my family, so I substituted spinach and added a dash of cayenne. My family asked me to make it again.

    Chicken was great the broccoli rabe was not. Too bitter and just had an odd taste. Only good thing that came out of it was I had to open a bottle of wine which forced me to have a glass while I was cooking.

    The chicken was simple and delicious :). We used broccoli florets instead of the rabe, which worked wonderfully. The unique flavor in the broccoli side dish pulled the dish together nicely. I also served with a simple veggie pasta side.

    The chicken was very good. I think next time I would try a different vegetable to replace the rabe, like spinach or broccoli.

    This needs an overhaul to be a regular for me. The breadcrumbs would not stick to the chicken, I would use a little mustard next time for better adhesion. I agree with other reviewers that the sauce was to thin, and needed to reduce more. Also cooking my broccoli rabe in the acidic sauce turned it army green and bitter. Based on the rating I served it when I had company for dinner and was sorely disappointed with the dish.

    I made this for dinner tonight, and this was a really great dish. I too substituted broccoli for the rabe as I know how bitter that stuff can be if not cooked correctly. The chicken was delicious and super easy to make - which is something I'm always looking for since I'm a busy working mom :) Kudos to CL!!!

    Average-type dish. May or may not make again.

    Easy prep, easy clean-up. Used chicken breasts, pounded to even thickness then cut into serving pieces. Used salt & pepper on the chicken before breading. Kept the chicken in a warming oven while we finished sauce. Cooked the rabe 2min in boiling water (rather than cooking in sauce), then shocked in an ice-water bath. Plated with white rice cooked in chicken broth and topped the chicken and broccoli rabe with sauce. Nice winter meal.

    I agree with Lia2878. Not a new favorite, unfortunately, but it was worth a try.

    I would not make it again...it was just okay.

  • brittypaige Posted: 01/23/12

    eh... the chicken was really good- i used thin cut chicken breasts and had no issue with the breadcrumbs sticking enough. will definitely make that part again- husband loved it. only thing is, that's not really "look up a recipe" type material.. i mean, add breadcrumbs and cook in a skillet... that's so basic. as for the broccoli part, they didn't have any b. rabe at the grocery, so i substituted spinach. WAY too much lemon juice though, and yes, turned the greens a weird army green. i ended up just sprinkling the parsley and capers on the chicken instead of adding it to the "eh" side dish, which was really nice to give it a little more flavor. and i agree with the other lady, only bonus with cooking the veggie part was opening a bottle of wine ;) will definitely make the chicken again, definitely not the side dish.

    I love this!!! I used regular chicken breasts and finished cooking them in the oven at 350. I used frozen, steamable broccoli. I used pink Moscato wine. I served it with corn. The whole family loved it. I will make it again and again!!

  • hornekm Posted: 05/29/12

    Very good meal and easy to make. I just used fresh broccoli instead of rabe and it was fine.

  • Belladonna714 Posted: 02/04/13
    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    Very good! I used regular boneless breasts without pounding and just finished them in the oven. Like most other reviewers, I do not care for broccoli rabe so I used broccoletti instead. I served this with CLs golden potatoes with carrots recipe...also delicious!

  • Steiny Posted: 11/07/12

    I felt the bitterness of the broccoli rabe overwhelmed the flavor of the chicken. It didn't help that I didn't have good wine on hand for the recipe. I should have read the other comments and used regular broccoli. Not something I would rush to cook again.

  • daneanp Posted: 05/28/12

    I opted to use boneless, skinless, chicken breasts that I pounded to 1/2" thickness before dredging. I omitted the broccoli rabe and used the wine/lemon sauce (reduced) over cooked orzo. The trick with the sauce is to use a good quality dry white - we used Wente Riva Ranch chardonnay. Side veggie of grilled summer squash slices. Easy and delicious. An elegant meal, I would definitely serve it for guests.

  • Alan32 Posted: 01/31/13

    Im slightly confused. Do you serve/use the wine sauce when serving? Or do you just ditch it in the end after cooking the Broccoli Rabe? Could should you use it to drizzel over the chicken and or Broccoli?

  • runpiecerun Posted: 05/13/13

    Terrible. I thought the whole recipe was terrible from start to finish. I followed it exact. The chicken was bland and combination of flavors that the broccoli rabe was cooked was horrible. Maybe it was the type of wine I used in conjuction with the acidic lemon juice, but it seriously tasted like vomit.

  • vlivengood Posted: 03/19/14

    My hubby picked this for me to make and he LOVED it as well as my daughter...... I myself thought it was a little bland still but definitely pretty easy and I will make again and try and spice it up a bit more.... After reading many many reviews I made these alterations/additions/omissions To bread crumbs Added garlic SALT and Italian seasoning Lightly salted breasts before dredging Par boiled and ice bathed broccolini Used less lemon juice, doubled the butter, omitted capers (only cause I realized I didn't have) added one clove diced fresh garlic to the sauce and used fresh basil instead of parsley Served with a three cheese risotto (from a box.... Yes a box and it is actually easy and yummy)

  • csm0826 Posted: 08/14/13

    My family loved it. Next time Ill use a tad less lemon juice, a little too bitter for our taste when you used the sauce on the broccoli (I didn't have broccoli rabe on hand). And I also seasoned the chicken breast with a coarse garlic sea salt
