Now FODMAP Free dieters can enjoy this delightful classic Italian recipe! The simple, tangy sauce is fantastic.
  • 2 pounds thin chicken breasts (skinless and boneless)
  • Salt
  • Coarse ground black pepper
  • ¾ cup gluten free oat flour, sifted
  • 6 tablespoons dairy free butter substitute
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ⅓ cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup FODMAP Free chicken broth *
  • ½ cup capers, rinsed
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • ⅓ cup fresh parsley, chopped **
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Rinse chicken pieces in cold water and shake off the excess water.
  3. Dredge chicken in gluten free oat flour and shake off excess.
  4. Season chicken with salt and pepper.
  5. In a large heavy skillet over medium high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of dairy free butter substitute with 2 tablespoons olive oil.
  6. When butter and oil start to sizzle, add coated chicken and cook for approximately 3 minutes on each side. Chicken should be cooked in a single layer.
  7. When browned on each side, remove chicken from skillet and transfer to an ungreased glass or ceramic baking pan.
  8. Repeat the chicken cooking process until all pieces are cooked.
  9. Once chicken is cooked, whisk the lemon juice, about half the chicken broth and any remaining butter substitute and olive oil to skillet and bring to a boil, scraping the brown bits from the pan for extra flavor.
  10. When the mixture is boiling, gradually whisk in the remaining flour.
  11. Slowly add the remaining chicken broth and continue mixing until well combined.
  12. Reduce heat and simmer sauce for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  13. Pour sauce over the cooked chicken and sprinkle the capers over the chicken and sauce.
  14. Place the lemon slices on the chicken.
  15. Sprinkle with parsley.
  16. Bake for 25 minutes or until sauce is bubbling.
* If you use store bought chicken broth, be sure it doesn't have any added onion and/or garlic.

** The parsley is for garnish. I have substituted dried parsley when I don't have fresh and it works just fine.

    As I will be the only member in house on this diet I am just trying to prepare myself for starting in January, Can these dishes be frozen as to make so much for 6-8 people I worry it will be wasted, I am not the best cook but have to try my best to succeed with this. Or can it be reheated


      You can freeze chicken piccata, but it’s much better fresh or reheated. You can easily serve this to non-FODMAP’ers and they won’t know the difference! In fact, most of our recipes are meant to appeal to everyone.
