I am so excited to share this recipe!! I have been hacking my way through different traditional recipes using yogurt and this one turned out so awesome!!
You know that want to lick the plate good?
I really love the yogurt that I use as it has really good strains of live culture probiotics and it is very mild in flavor. I use the brand White Mountain, but you can use any plain Greek yogurt if this brand is not available to you.
Soooo….. Let’s get started!
Healthy Hack - Chicken Piccata
A healthy hack on a traditional recipe! I used the brand White Mountain Bulgarian Probiotic Yogurt, but if this is not available look for a full-fat Greek Yogurt with live cultures in the ingredient label.
On a cutting board slice chicken breasts in half lengthwise (or buy thin cut breasts) and season with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
Zest the lemon and then cut in half and set aside
On medium heat, place large pan on burner and heat olive oil, once oil is heated add in chicken, turn chicken every 5 minutes for 25 minutes until they are cooked through and nicely browned. Remove chicken from the pan.
Add in wine, capers and lemon zest. Use a spatula to scrape the bits off the bottom of the pan. This will add a lot of flavor to the sauce.
Reduce wine to half the amount and turn off the heat
Add a couple of drops of lemon juice
Add in a pinch salt, pepper and garlic powder and stir to combine – taste to see if you need more seasonings.
Pairings: You could pair this dish with pasta, veggie noodles of your choice or roasted potatoes and a nice salad.
In the featured picture, we used spiralized potatoes tossed with olive oil, salt, and pepper, baked in the oven for about 30 minutes or until tender.
