TGI Friday's Lemon Chicken Scaloppini

  Chicken:
    2 1/2 pounds chicken breast (pounded thin)
    2 ounces olive oil
    8 ounces sliced mushrooms
    2 lemons (halved)
    4 ounces heavy whipping cream
    4 artichoke hearts
    4 teaspoons parsley
    12 ounces lemon sauce
    20 ounces angel hair pasta, cooked
    8 tablespoons fried pancetta
    4 tablespoons fried capers

  Lemon Sauce:
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    1 quart Chablis
    3 teaspoons butter
    1 quart whipping cream
    1 tablespoon thyme
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon pepper

  Sauce: Boil Chablis to reduce to 2 cups. Add lemon juice, butter
 and melt slowly. Add whipping cream and simmer on low heat until
 thickened. Add spices and cool to room temperature.

  Chicken: Heat saute pan over medium heat. Add oil and heat. Add
 chicken pieces to saute pan and saute on each side for one minute
 (or until no longer pink). Add sliced mushrooms to saute pan and
 saute with chicken for an additional minute. When mushrooms are
 cooked, squeeze juice from lemons into saute pan and coat the
 chicken with juice (ensure there are no seeds). Add cream to pan
 and stir to incorporate. Bring to a boil. Cut artichoke halves in
 half again lengthwise, add to pan and cook for 15 seconds. Remove
 pan from heat. Add parsley and stir to incorporate. Add lemon sauce
 and stir to incorporate. DO NOT RETURN PAN TO HEAT/FLAME.

  In large bowl, twirl pasta into a nest. Sprinkle chicken pieces
 around pasta and pour remaining contents of pan on and around the
 chicken. Sprinkle pancetta and capers over the entire dish. Garnish
 with chopped parsley.
