Servings 4
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot flour
  • 2 teaspoon fine sea salt divided
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter separated (see notes)
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 shallot or small onion sliced thin
  • 3 garlic cloves finely minced
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup capers
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley


  • Place arrowroot flour in a wide shallow bowl and set aside.
  • Pat chicken dry and season with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Dredge chicken in the arrowroot flour, shaking off the excess flour. Transfer to a plate.
  • In a skillet over medium-high, heat 1 tablespoons butter and 1 tablespoon of oil. Once hot, add chicken to skillet, working in batches if needed, to brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels and set aside. Add more oil between batches if necessary.
  • Once chicken has finished, turn heat down to medium and add shallot and garlic to skillet and sauté until soft, about 3 minutes.
  • Add lemon juice, broth, capers, 1 tablespoon butter, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper to the skillet and bring to boil, scraping up any browned bits and stirring to combine.
  • Turn down heat to simmer and add back chicken, cooking until sauce has thickened, about 5 minutes.
  • Turn off heat and add parsley, taste and add more lemon juice if desired.


If more sauce is desired to serve over pasta, double ingredients for sauce.
Can sub ghee instead of butter!

    Really enjoyed the piccata recipe! Easy to make and very tasty. Made steamed green/yellow bean almondine with beans from the garden and fruit. Will definitely make again.

  2. Yummy. Made for the family on Valentine’s Day. Used just an egg wash without the arrowroot flour, then dipped in parmesan cheese. My grandson who is celiac, loved it as did the whole family!

    Love chicken piccata and this was excellent. And who needs gluten! Doubled the sauce. Made noodles for my husband and butternut squash snoodles for me. Served with broccoli but will serve with green beans next time.
