Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts (boneless skinless)
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup no-salt chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 or 2 lemons, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 large zucchini, sliced into rounds
  • 1/4 cup parsley, torn
  • 1 Tbsp pickled lupini beans (optional)

Directions

Step 1

Cut chicken in half lengthwise. On a hard surface, pound chicken into thin cutlets. Season flour with salt and pepper and coat chicken (shake off any excess flour).

Step 2

Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in non-stick pan. Cook chicken for 8 minutes, flipping halfway. Remove from pan and set aside.

Step 3

Add chicken broth, water, lemon juice, 1 Tbsp olive oil, and butter to pan. Stir until butter melts. Add zucchini, parsley, and beans (if using); cook 5 minutes. Add chicken to pan and cook 2 minutes.

Step 4

Handy Hint: Serve with 1/2 cup of whole grain pasta or Arborio rice, if desired. Use pickled lupini beans instead of traditional capers for less salt and more fiber.
