Chicken piccata is a dish that I have known about for a long time, but one I didn't try until I went to a dinner party a couple years back. Now granted the dinner party version probably had about a pound of butter, but that night I fell in love with the dish. It's surprisingly easy to lighten up using almond flour and a lot less butter. The lemon and capers still bring plenty of flavor and it makes a great holiday or special weeknight meal.

1

Sprinkle the chicken cutlets on both sides with salt and pepper. Set aside 1 tsp. of almond flour. Spread the remaining flour out on a large plate and gently coat each chicken breast with flour. Set aside.

2

In a skillet or sauté pan, melt 3/4 tbsp. of butter over medium high heat. Add 1/2 tbsp. olive oil and a touch of cooking spray if needed. Add the chicken breast and cook for 4 minutes on each side. Then set aside and tent with tinfoil to keep them warm. While the chicken is cooking, mix 1 tsp. of flour into 1/4 cup of chicken stock and set aside.

3

Add the other 1/2 tbsp. of olive oil, shallots, and garlic to the pan. Cook for two minutes until fragrant but not burnt.

4

Add 1/2 cup of chicken stock and scrape all of the brown bits off the bottom of the pan. Cook for about 5 minutes until the chicken broth almost evaporates.

5

Add the chicken broth you mixed with almond flour and stir until smooth. Then add the final 1/2 cup chicken broth and bring it to a boil. Let it reduce by half and then turn the burner to low.

6

Stir in the remaining butter, capers, mustard, lemon juice, and parsley. Serve each chicken breast with around 2 tbsp. sauce.
