Chicken Piccata Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy
Low carb recipe for Chicken Piccata which belongs to the Poultry recipe category.
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- cup (60 ml) olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1 tablespoon (15 ml) lemon juice, or the juice of lemon
- cup (120 ml) dry white wine
- 1 tablespoon (9 g) capers, chopped
- 3 tablespoons (11.4 g) fresh parsley, chopped
Place a chicken breast in a large, heavy, resealable plastic bag and pound it until it's inch (6 mm) thick.
Repeat with the remaining chicken breasts.
Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the chicken; if it doesn't all fit at the same time, cook it in two batches, keeping the first batch warm while the second batch is cooking.
Cook the chicken until it's done through (3 to 4 minutes per side).
Remove the chicken from the pan.
Add the garlic, lemon juice, white wine, and capers to the pan, stirring it all around to get the tasty little brown bits off the bottom of the pan.
Boil the whole thing hard for about 1 minute to reduce it a little.
Put the chicken back in the pan for another minute, sprinkle the parsley over it, and serve.
