Light Chicken Piccata

Submitted by: COUNTINGSHEEP

Introduction

Lighter version of Chicken Piccata. This is one of my husband's favorite dishes! A light coating of flour adds just enough breading without all the egg and flour. Lighter version of Chicken Piccata.

    Super tasty! I love that it is much lower in calories and fat than most of the other recipes. I didn't have any white wine so I used apple juice instead, worked great. I have had the full calorie version as well, I thought this tasted just as good. - 1/7/11
