Easy & Healthy Chicken Piccata

Updated: Feb 14

This is one of my favorites go-to healthy meals! Eating Healthy and Tasty just got easier!

I love to eat! Now, being a Cerified Nutritionist, I really care about what I give my body. I think it’s so important to not only fuel my activities (Dance Workouts, Weight training, hiking, etc), but ALSO to help my body RECOVER. I think this recipe is great for both! Eat it with a little complex carb (i.e.: brown rice, pasta, potato) and veggies and you’re good to go!

DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT CONSIDER MYSELF A COOK AT ALL! So the fact that I can cook this and cook it successfully every time is a huge testament of how miraculous this recipe is. It is the tastiest plate I have ever prepared! This takes me 10 minutes to make and it's actually my husband's favorite meal that I cook. 10 minutes and easy? Yeah I'll be a hero in the kitchen with those two prerequisites any day!


I have adapted this recipe from Tasty.co - the only difference is that I don't use flour.

I buy everything ORGANIC, so that's my tip #1 right there. If it's in your budget, go ORGANIC!

Be sure to begin to defrost your chicken the day before (if you're a beginner cook like me you'll appreciate this tip hahaha!).

Alright, let's begin...

INGREDIENTS for 2 servings

  • 1 large boneless and skinless chicken breast (you may also use chicken tenders!)

  • Salt (your favorite kind, qnty to taste)

  • Ground pepper (qnty to taste)

  • 3 tablespoons of butter (or any other alternative to butter you may prefer)

  • 1/2 cup of chicken or veggie broth (tastes amazing with either!)

  • 1 lemon (juice)

  • 2 tablespoons of capers

Step #1: Butterfly the chicken breast.

(I have used chicken tenders before, and it's AHH-MAZING! I use about 6 chicken tenders. If you decide to use chicken tenders, you get to skip this step! No butterflying anything. How easy was that already?)

Step #2: Place Plastic Wrap on top of Chicken and Pound Away!

(The plastic wrap is for hygiene purposes.)

Step #3: Remove Plastic Wrap and Add Salt & Pepper to Taste.

Step #4: In a skillet over High Heat, melt 3 Tbsp. of Butter (or any other butter alternative you may prefer), and Brown the Chicken 3–5 minutes on each side.

(The browner and crispier the better!)

Step #5: Remove Chicken from the Skillet, and, in the same pan, add:

  • 1/2 cup of chicken stock (or veggie stock)

  • 1 lemon (juice)

  • 2 tablespoons of capers

Step #6: Boil until the Sauce reduces by ⅓, and return the Chicken to the Skillet.

Step #7: Spoon Sauce over the Chicken several times.

Step #8: Serve immediately! Enjoy!
