Romano's Macaroni Grill Chicken Scaloppine

Menu Description: " Chicken breast, mushrooms, artichokes, capers & smoked prosciutto in lemon butter with pasta."

Mushrooms, artichoke hearts, and prosciutto in a creamy lemon butter sauce surround sauteed chicken breasts and angel hair pasta for this unique and satisfying take on a traditional dish. This clone ranks in the top three most requested recipes on my hit list from the 227-unit Romano's Macaroni Grill. The successful Italian chain is part of the Brinker group of restaurants that controls several other high-profile casual eateries including Border Mexican Grill, Maggianos, and Chili's.

I made this for my boyfriend tonight, while the recipe itself was good and the combination of flavors was very good; my sauce also separated and curdled and at the end I was left with a sauce that was 2 sticks of pure melted butter. I will try it again and maybe not use so much butter or I will make sure not to pour the cold cream into the hot liquid.

Delicious! I couldn't believe how easy this was to make. My husband loved it and said it tasted just like Macaroni Grill's dish, which btw, is our favorite dish on their menu. Definitely worth buying.

Great dish, wonderful flavor, however I will use a smaller amount of pasta next time and probably use Fettuchini as we prefer a thicker pasta. Paul, if your sauce splits/curdles you may be putting the cold heavy cream in the pan while the sauce is still extremely hot......let the sauce cool for a minute or two before adding it. You may find that if you successfully add the cream it may still curdle if you have mixture over to high a heat. When working with heavy cream take everything slowly up to the desired heat and keep mixing and keep an eye on it. Hope this helps.

I would give this a 10 if I could - definitely company worthy! I did add the zest of the lemon, because why not?! The butter sauce would be excellent on lobster, shrimp, etc.

Made this dish for 25 people for a luncheon, and they raved. It's a keeper. They all cleaned there plates and I think a few may have licked them clean.

Wonderful! This recipe is better than the dish served at Romano's. I make it often and have substituted smoked bacon for prosciutto. Highly recommended.

My dish turned out very good even though I omitted the prosciutto and capers only because I had none on hand. I served it with parmesan cheese and it even tasted great leftover.

Pretty darn close. The only problem is that I live in Japan and some of the recipe items are not readily available. That said, I was not disapointed. In fact, since I can control the ingredients I can fine tune it to my tastes.

OUTSTANDING! Easily a $29.95 dish at any upscale restaurant. If there were a 6-star rating, this dish would get it!

OMG This is the first recipe I have ever attempted to do by TSR. It was great! It's hard to find the meat for this dish though. Any substitute suggestions? Other than that 5 stars!

We pick special reipes to fix together and this is at the top of our list! The sauce was fantastic and flavors great. We used palm hearts and it worked.

Great recipe...I put some mitzah cheese on top...Yummy! It's much easier to get pre-chopped prosciutto.

I guess I did something wrong because my sauce curdled (sp?). I didn't get back in time to check it out. Oh well, can't give it a good rating!

LOVED IT!!!! I've never been to Romano's but have had something similar at The Cheesecake Factory that also included roasted garlic and a sprinkling of parmesan before serving. So I added those 2 things and I'm IN LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!

This recipe was wonderful. I served it to my family and brought meals-on-wheels to my mother. She thought it was wonderful. I think the amount of pasta (16 oz. pkg) was excessive for the amount of chicken. But otherwise, this recipe is surely a keeper! Two thumbs up!

There isn't a Macaroni Grill where I live so everytime we go out of town that is where I want to go. I always get this Chicken Scallopine because it is so good. Great recipe.

Todd you have done it again. This recipe is the very best I have tried in the last several months. It couldn't match the origianl any closer without improving on it.

This is a great recipe but why rinse out the pan after cooking the chicken? Those chicken bits left in the pan are awesome!

This is a fabulous recipe! I lightened up the sauce, though, using about 2-3 Tablespoons of Shedd's Spread, a cup of Chicken Broth, and a pint of half and half. Cook it a bit longer to thicken it up, but saves calories over 2 sticks of butter!!! I also used more capers (we love it tangy!) - the balance between the salty ham and meat, and the tangy lemon and capers is fabulous!
