Fettuccine with Chicken Piccata

6 small boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (3 oz each)
Vegetable cooking spray
1 tablespoon margarine
2 tablespoons flour
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup dry white wine or chicken broth
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
2 teaspoons drained capers, optional
12 ounces fettuccine, cooked, warm


1. Pound chicken with flat side of meat mallet to scant 1/4 inch thickness; coat lightly with flour. Spray large skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat until hot. Cook chicken over medium to medium-high heat until hot. Cook chicken over medium to medium-high heat until browned and no longer pink in center, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove chicken from skillet.
2. Melt margarine in skillet; stir in 2 tablespoons flour and cook over medium heat 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in chicken broth, wine, and lemon juice; heat to boiling. Boil, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until thickened to a medium sauce consistency, about 15 minutes more. Stir in parsley and capers.
3. Return chicken to sauce; cook over medium-low heat until chicken is hot through, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve chicken and sauce over pasta.
