Chicken piccata (yes, it’s 2 Cs and 1 T as the spell check loves to remind me over and over) is one of those dishes you might order in an Italian restaurant thinking it’s healthy but when it arrives, to your dismay (or not!) it’s swimming in butter. Not really good for the waistline or the heart!
I love the sweet and tart flavors of lemon and capers, and yes even the butter, so I had to find a way to lighten up this dish without skimping on flavor. This light chicken piccata recipe turned out to be a big winner in my house and on my hips – weighing in at only 369 calories for chicken AND pasta!
Make this light chicken piccata tonight and wow your family. They’ll thank you (as they’re licking their plates)!
