Recipe from Sugar Free Mom




5- 8 oz skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut in half
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup gluten free flour (I used Bob’s red mill oat flour)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chicken broth low sodium
4 garlic cloves minced
1/4 cup capers rinsed
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped


  • Place each chicken breast portion between two pieces of plastic wrap.
  • Using the flat side of a meat mallet, pound each breast until its about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Remove top plastic wrap and salt and pepper chicken then dredge in flour. Shake off excess flour.
  • Heat a large saute pan with oil.
  • Cook chicken until lightly browned and no longer pink in center, turning halfway through cooking.
  • Remove chicken and set aside in a covered container to keep warm.
  • Reduce heat to low. Add broth, garlic, capers, and lemon juice to saute pan and simmer for about 2 minutes until slightly reduced.
  • Return chicken to pan and heat through.
  • Serve chicken with capers and lemon juices over top and sprinkle with parsley.
