Cook linguine

Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Add linguine to the boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 10-12 min. Reserve 1 cup pasta water (dbl for 4 ppl), then drain linguine.


While water come to a boil, peel, then mince or grate garlic. Roughly chop spinach. Zest, then juice lemon. Add capers to a small bowl, then pour over hot water. Stir to combine, then leave to soak, 2 min. Once soaked, drain, then rinse capers.

Prep and cook chicken

Pat chicken dry with paper towels, then season with 1/4 tsp salt (dbl for 4 ppl) and pepper. Add half the flour to a shallow dish. Add chicken to flour mixture, then toss to coat. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then chicken. (NOTE: Don't overcrowd the pan; cook in 2 batches for 4 ppl, using 1 tbsp oil per batch!) Sear until tenders are golden-brown and cooked through, 3-4 min per side.** Transfer to a plate.

Make sauce

Add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) to the same pan, then swirl the pan until melted. Add cooking wine and half the garlic. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1-2 min. Add remaining flour. Cook, stirring constantly, until a paste forms, 1 min. Add capers, broth concentrate and reserved pasta water. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens slightly, 2-3 min. Return chicken to the pan with sauce. Cook, stirring often, until chicken is coated with sauce, 1 min. Remove from heat.

Finish linguine

While sauce thickens, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) to the same large pot (from step 1) over medium-high and swirl to melt. Add remaining garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 1 min. Add linguine and spinach. Cook, tossing often, until spinach is wilted, 1 min. Add lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine.

Finish and serve

Add 1 tbsp lemon juice (dbl for 4 ppl) to the pan with chicken. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, then toss to combine. Divide linguine between plates. Top with chicken, then spoon over any remaining sauce from the pan.
