Welcome all! Papa G here Today I present low carbohydrate Chicken Picatta
What began as a recipe made with veal, has slowly become a very popular chicken dish A classic recipe, made with lemon, butter and capers I'll take this Italian inspired entree and give it a low carbohydrate twist Let's get started We'll use two large boneless, skinless chicken breasts for our recipe; and slice them in half To help with even cooking, flatten each side until they're about a quarter inch in thickness This will also help to reduce the time it will take to cook Season some almond flour with a pinch of salt and a little black pepper
Add about a quarter cup of ground pork rinds and some grated Parmesan cheese Mix with your hands to incorporate We'll also season our chicken breasts with a pinch of salt and some black pepper Be sure to season both sides Once all of our chicken has been seasoned, place each breast in the almond flour mix and press down to coat each side
Notice, we're not using an egg wash here We only want a light coating; just enough to add a little flavor and soak up the sauce we'll be making a bit later on Now that our chicken has been prepped, we'll start cooking To a large skillet on medium-high heat, add about four tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and about two tablespoons of unsalted butter Once our oil and butter come up to temperature, add the chicken breast; two at a time so that we don't overcrowd the pan
Cook each side for approximately three minutes You'll see it develop a nice golden brown coating When our chicken is cooked, put it on a baking sheet in place in an oven preheated to 200 degrees to keep warm as we work on our sauce To our skillet still on medium-high heat, we'll deglaze the pan with some chicken stock Be sure to get all of the goodness off the bottom of the pan
Add about two tablespoons of lemon juice and about a quarter cup of brined capers Mix together and mash just a few of the capers to enhance the flavor When the sauce reduces to about half, add about 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter and stir in as the butter melts Remove the chicken from the oven; plate, and pour over our buttery goodness The aroma is fantastic! Delicious! There you have it folks
