Chicken Scaloppine With Spinach and Linguine

1 pound fresh asparagus
1 (16-oz.) package linguine
1 (9-oz.) package fresh spinach, thoroughly washed
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons pepper, divided
6 chicken cutlets (about 1 1/2 lb.)
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 tablespoon lemon zest
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup capers, rinsed and drained
2 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
Grated Parmesan cheese

Snap off and discard tough ends of asparagus; cut asparagus in half crosswise. Prepare linguine according to package directions, adding asparagus during last 2 minutes of cooking. Drain; return to pan. Stir in spinach; cover and keep warm over low heat.

Combine 3/4 cup flour, 1 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1 tsp. pepper in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add chicken cutlets; seal bag, and shake to lightly coat.

Melt 1 tbsp. butter with 1 tbsp. olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook 3 cutlets in skillet 2 to 3 minutes; turn and cook 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly browned and done. Remove from skillet. Repeat procedure with remaining 1 tbsp. butter, 1 tbsp. oil, and 3 cutlets. (Chicken may be kept warm in a 250 oven on a wire rack.)

Whisk 2 Tbsp. flour into skillet, and cook 30 seconds. Whisk in chicken broth, next 3 ingredients, and remaining 1/2 tsp. salt and pepper. Cook over medium-high heat 6 to 8 minutes or until slightly thickened, whisking to loosen particles from bottom of skillet. Pour over warm pasta mixture; toss to combine. Transfer to a serving dish, and sprinkle with tomatoes. Serve immediately with chicken and Parmesan cheese. Makes 6 servings
