Thinly sliced, moist and tender chicken with fantastic seasonings and melt in your mouth texture, all in less than 30 minutes! Yes, it can be done. This recipe is a simple adaption from my original low fat chicken piccata, which is still fantastic but needed a little change.
Adding a small amount of gluten free flour to the chicken breast before browning them in a pan creates a juicy piece of meat that even your kids will find appetizing! You can certainly use whatever flour you have on hand if gluten is not an issue in your house.
Only 7 ingredients plus seasonings needed here and no oven required, all made on the stove. My kind of meal is one that can be made in less than 30 minutes on any weeknight that the whole family will love and this is a winner! My original recipe was a bit too lemony for the kids (Hubby and I love that version) so they like this adaption much better and of course it's also picky hubby approved too!
If you're looking for a completely carb free version the original recipe is the way to go, Healthy Low Fat Chicken Piccata.
