How to Make Low carb Chicken Piccata

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cook broccoli first in boiling water, drain well and keep warm. The broccoli is used as a bed for the Chicken Piccata instead of noodles or starches.
  • 2Lightly flour chicken breasts.
  • 3Mix together broth, capers, zest and lemon juice in separate bowl. Set aside.
  • 4Melt 1/2 stick butter to saute pan and brown chicken breasts well. Remove from pan.
  • 5Add broth ingredients scraping up browned bit on bottom of pan. Place breasts back into pan and cook on the number 8 heat on an electric stove. You want a higher heat. Cook about 5 min until done. It will not take long to cook because the breasts are thin. Do not overcook or they will dry out. Plate the breasts and keep warm.
  • 6Keep cooking the sauce until about half remains.
  • 7Put cooked broccoli in bottom of large serving bowl, place chicken on top and pour sauce over it all.
