Ok, Day 4 of Attack! Back from Vegas this morning and ready to get in the kitchen again to create more tasty Dukan Diet recipes. This is a repost of a favorite to get you through today! Hope you are doing well…
I just made this dish at 9 in the morning! And Tom is actually eating it! Now that’s dedication. Hope you all enjoy. It’s a really, really easy citrus-y light sauce. Have a great day!
CHICKEN PICCATA WITH CAPERS
1/2 lb chicken tenders or 2 small breasts
1 t corn starch
3 T white wine
3 T lemon juice
1 t lemon zest
1 T capers
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 package Tofu Shirataki spaghetti noodles (optional-PV days only)
2 T Italian parsley, chopped
olive oil spray
salt and pepper
Place each breast between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap and pound to 1/2-inch thickness. Sprinkle each breast with corn starch. Heat skillet over medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray. Add chicken, and cook for 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove chicken from pan and keep warm, covering loosely with foil. Add wine, lemon juice, zest, capers, and garlic to pan, scraping pan to loosen bits. Cook for 2-3 minutes; if sauce gets too thick too quickly, just add a few tablespoons of water to thin it out. Season with salt and pepper. Serve the chicken over the noodles, if using, and pour sauce over it. Garnish with parsley.
