How to make Romano's Macaroni Grill's Chicken Scaloppine

Okay, Romano (whoever you are), you had me at Prosciutto and Artichokes.  I see that combo on a menu and I don’t need to read any further.  That’s what I’m ordering.  Then throw in the mushrooms, capers and lemon cream sauce?  C’mon!  This chicken scaloppine dish is incredible.

Of all the Italian-American chain restaurants, I would have to say that Romano’s Macaroni Grill is my favorite.  In my opinion, I feel that their menu items offer more “authentic” Italian choices.  Now I am not an expert in Italian cuisine, but I have traveled through Italy and I did sleep at an Holiday Inn Express last night.  So, that counts.

Like, take for example, the fact RMG offers Broccolini on their sides menu.  And they even spell “scaloppine” the proper Italian way. That says everything right there, right?

Why do I feel all of my Italian web page visitors cringing right now?

Because, they are.  That’s why.

But whatever, I have nothing but complete love for all things Italian.  Their zest for life is enviable, the people and countryside are gorgeous and hospitable, and their food is simply the best.

Once while in Italy, my husband and I stopped in Parma to buy the famous Parmesan cheese, Parma Prosciutto and a loaf of Italian crusty bread. We ate the “picnic” on the road in our rented Fiat on route from Milan to Florence. An experience I will never forget…clearly!  Maybe my next go around, I’ll come back as an Italian.

For a fun Italian restaurant night, at your house, serve the Chicken Scaloppine  with The Olive Garden’s Fettuccine Alfredo and The Olive Garden’s House Salad and Buon Appetito!

Freaking awesome! This is by far my favorite Italian dish and doing it your way came out perfect.
Quick question: is angel hair the only pasta you use? My son doesn’t care for it, but he likes linguine.
