Low carb italian dishes connect light, heavy, and absolutely flavorful meals. Chicken piccata sits towards the top of the most popular italian dishes and flavorful. The tanginess of the wine, as well as the sour from the lemon create the best chicken recipe. I prefer chicken thighs over chicken breast due to a low carb high fat lifestyle. Try complimenting your chicken piccata together with zoodles or miracle noodles. Certainly a taste of italy in this low carb italian dish!
1pack4 chicken thighs(Or chicken cut of your choice)
3/4cupPinot Grigio(Sub for chicken broth)
1TBolive oil(or oil of choice (for frying chicken only))
1/8tspXanthan gum(For thickiening of cream, add more if needed)
Season chicken with salt and pepper, then in a frying or saute pan add about a TB of olive oil and cook chicken until done.
Afer chicken is done, set aside. leaving all juices in the pan
Add pinot grigio wine or chicken broth, lemon juice, minced garlic, and capers to leftover pan juices. Continuing on medium heat allow to reduce a little around 25%
After reduced add heavy cream, parmesan cheese, parsley and xanthan gum
Add chicken back in to mixture. Lower heat to simmer and cover for 5-10 minutes. Keeping a close eye to avoid sticking and cooking all of your sauce away.
After sauce is desired thickness , remove from heat and enjoy
Keep close eye on pan after adding xanthan gum. If still liquidy and not combined add more 1/8 tsp at a time.Some fat may cook out of chicken after adding back in the sauce. If the fat doesn't mix into the cream this is fine.Macros:Fat 24g Net carbs 2g Protein 21gNutrition facts are estimates from My Fitness Pal
