Chicken Piccata

Mike and I both loved this one. I had never cooked with capers before and was pleasantly surprised how good they are. This is a very light Italian recipe and has a light lemon flavor to it. The sauce will be thinner than most sauces you will find on Chicken Piccata recipes because I didn’t want to add carbs to it. The flavor is still the same. Enjoy!

Chicken Piccata

  • 3 Tablespoons Coconut Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pound chicken tenders
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon dried parsley or 2 Tablespoons fresh parsley
  • 2 Tablespoons drained, capers- chopped

Combine coconut flour, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Reserve 1 Tablespoon coconut flour mixture.

Dip chicken tenders into coconut flour mixture and coat lightly.

Heat oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and get hot but without burning. Add chicken to pan and cook for 4-6 minutes before turning. If you turn too soon the chicken will not brown and the recipe will get thick and gunky. After turning allow the chicken to cook again 4-6 minutes before turning. Once chicken is browned remove from pan and allow to drain.

In skillet add garlic, cook and stir over medium heat 1 minute. You may need to add a bit more butter to the pan at this point if it is dry. Add reserved coconut flour mixture and cook stirring 1 minute.  Add broth and lemon juice; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until sauce thickens slightly. Stir in parsley and capers and spoon over chicken.

  1. This is one of my favorite meals so I will be adding this to the must try list.

    Thanks for the share


  2. This was yummy. I used parmesan cheese to keep it induction friendly. And kept the sauce thin. I used left over olives with the capers and served with cauliflower mash.

  3. I made it again with the coconut flour breading and the capers. Very very yummy. Didn’t taste coconut at all and it gave it a nice crusty outside. I didn’t use the flour as a rue, didn’t think it needed it.
