An Italian restaurant classic gets the keto treatment in this dish. The unique flavor of the capers and lemon juice pairs well with the chicken and white wine. Traditionally made with chicken breast, this recipe calls for chicken thighs to increase the amount of fat.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless chicken thighs

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 1/2 cup dry white wine

  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 1 tbsp capers, chopped

  • 3 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  • On a flat surface, flatten the chicken thighs with a meat tenderizer until they are ¼ inch thick. Season with the salt and pepper.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil for about 1 minute. Place two chicken thighs in the pan. Cook for about 4 minutes per side. Remove to a plate. Repeat, two at a time, with the remaining thighs. Set aside.
  • Using the same skillet, increase the heat to high. Add the white wine, lemon juice, garlic, and capers. Stir the sauce, scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Bring to a boil. Cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the chicken back into the pan. Heat in the sauce for 1 minute.
  • Add the parsley and stir to incorporate before serving.
