Chicken Piccata Low Fat

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Rita1652

There is no butter in this using just a bit of olive oil that keeps the good fat in you and the bad fat (butter) off you. This is a great light dish for those romantic evening when you don 't want to get weighed down!

Lovely chicken piccata! very flavourful with the capers and lemon. I had to use regular onion, finely chopped, couldn't find any decent shallots. The parsley was a nice fresh finish. I think it's important that the chicken be well pounded to very thin so that it can be cooked with high heat quickly. We loved the crisp outside and succulent inside and the sauce was delicious served with mashed potato and steamed broccoli. Thanks for a delish dinner Rita, I will make it again.
