Best Low-FODMAP Lemon Chicken Piccata; Gluten-free

Printer Friendly Version

This low-FODMAP Chicken Piccata with lemons and capers was modified from a recipe that we used weekly before I began the low-FODMAP diet.  Both my husband and I love the lemon flavors as well as the savory and salty capers and crispy chicken texture.

This low-FODMAP Chicken Piccata goes great with low-FODMAP lemon rice, low-FODMAP angel hair pasta or low-FODMAP Caesar Salad.  It is light enough for a Sunday lunch, and fancy enough for any dinner party. You will adore this low-FODMAP Lemon Chicken Piccata!
