Creamy Lemon Chicken Piccata (AIP/Paleo)

Creamy Lemon Chicken Piccata (AIP/Paleo)

I am super picky about the flavor of my food, I have zero tolerance for bland food. When I eat I need to taste the flavor immediately and it needs to be distinctive. It drives my family nuts that I often reach for the salt or the pepper after eating the first bite of my dinner, but I just have to have the flavor.

This recipe is a flavor lovers dream come true. I will be honest with you, I was doubtful about how flavorful it would be the first time I made it because the sauce was thin and I wasn’t sure that it would coat the chicken and the squash enough to really add to the dish. I was wrong. The lemon and the capers really pop and every single bite of this dish was jam packed with a wonderful, light, refreshing flavor.

Honestly, I think this is going to be my new go-to dish when I have people over for dinner because I just don’t see how anyone wouldn’t love it! I hope you feel the same.

    Hi Samantha – I know exactly how you feel about flavor. I also reach for the salt shaker and abhor food that has no taste! I love Chicken Piccata and know I will love this recipe. We have company coming in the next week and I will be turning to this recipe for one of the dinners. Thank you so much for posting this now via Phoenix Helix. LG

    This was really good. My kids did not like the capers but they just picked them out. I will make this again as I had dinner on the table in under 30 minutes.

    This turned out really good! I think my lemons were quite juicy because it had a pretty strong lemon flavor but my family didn’t seem to mind. Since I added more bone broth and coconut cream to balance the lemon flavor mine had a good amount of sauce but was quite runny. I’m thinking I might thicken a bit with arrowroot next time if it turns out runny again. Still a great recipe though, one of our new AIP favorites!
