King Arthur Chicken Piccata

You might wanna tell Justin Timberlake that I’m bringing chicken piccata back…for weeknight eating, and this time it’s gluten-free and luscious. I am so delighted to be in the kitchen with King Arthur Flour making this simple, but fabulous dish!

Their new Paleo Baking Flour is the perfect mix of almond flour for moisture, cassava flour for viscosity and coconut flour for thickness. I guess if you have been baking with joy since 1790 — you’re doing something right!

My easy hack makes this recipe even easier to cook on a weeknight – just start with chicken cutlets and eliminate the step of dipping in egg. You simply dredge the chicken in seasoned flour and sauté on the stove till brown, then finish with wine, butter, lemon and capers.

This version is gluten-free, but can be easily adjusted for Whole30, Paleo, or Keto.  All of King Arthur Flours are gluten-free flours and are certified by the Gluten Free Certification Organization (GFCO). They are also 100% grain free, non-GMO project verified and certified Kosher. There are so many reasons to love King Arthur, not to mention they are an employee owned company.
