healthy recipes chicken piccata

This was FANTASTIC! Followed the recipe but added some mushrooms to the mix and cooked those with the onions. I would cut down on lemon slices (I amy have put too many in) and use that for the juice. It is a do over. My husband was weary at first as he does not like capers but asked that we make that again. We did not serve over pasta but will next time and I would probably add a bit more juice if I did that. Thank you so much for a great healthy alternative.

Ingredients

  • 1 lemon
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon plus 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 large sweet onion, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
  • ¼ cup dry white wine
  • 4 teaspoons drained capers
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley

Instructions

  1. Cut lemon in half. Juice half of it, and cut the remaining half into thin slices. Cut chicken breasts into 8 thin cutlets.
  2. Whisk flour, salt and pepper in shallow dish or pie plate. Dredge chicken in the flour mixture, turning to coat. Discard 2 teaspoons dredging flour and reserve the rest to thicken the sauce in step 5.
  3. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the chicken and cook until the bottom is browned, 2 to 4 minutes. Turn over and continue cooking until browned on the bottom, 2 to 3 minutes. Set aside on a plate. Repeat with 2 teaspoons oil and the remaining 4 pieces of dredged chicken, adjusting the heat to medium-low to prevent the chicken from burning. Transfer the second batch of chicken to the plate.
  4. Wipe out skillet with a clean paper towel. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and place the skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, and cook, stirring often until soft and browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic, and cook, stirring constantly until the garlic is fragrant and just starting to brown, 30 to 90 seconds.
  5. Sprinkle the remaining dredging flour over the onion mixture and stir to coat. Stir in broth, white wine, capers, the lemon slices and the lemon juice, increase heat to high and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Add the chicken and any accumulated juices from the plate to the skillet and turn to coat in the sauce. Bring to a simmer while turning the chicken in the sauce until the sauce is thickened, and the chicken is completely cooked through and hot, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in parsley, remove from the heat and serve.

FOOD RECIPES AIR FRYER 3 INGREDIENT FRIED CATFISH

This was my first meal I tried in my new Chefman air fryer, I was a little nervous and apprehensive but oh my gosh it came out perfect. I should have taken a picture. I live in Fl so grouper is our fish favorite and trying to stay away from the fry daddy so very excited. My fryer was also not large enough for a lb of fish so I did half, the other half then stacked all for just long enough to warm. A definite do it again recipe !

Ingredients

  • 4 catfish fillets
  • 1/4 cup seasoned fish fry I used Louisiana
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat Air Fryer to 400 degrees.
  2. Rinse the catfish and pat dry.
  3. Pour the fish fry seasoning in a large Ziploc bag.
  4. Add the catfish to the bag, one at a time. Seal the bag and shake. Ensure the entire filet is coated with seasoning.
  5. Spray olive oil on the top of each filet.
  6. Place the filet in the Air Fryer basket.  (Due to the size of my fillets, I cooked each one at a time). Close and cook for 10 minutes.
  7. Flip the fish. Cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  8. Flip the fish.
  9. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes or until desired crispness.
  10. Top with parsley.

Notes

Use your judgment on if you will need more or less fish fry seasoning noted in the ingredients above. The amount you will need will vary based on the size of your fillets. Each fillet should be fully coated with seasoning, but not overly coated.

Cooking time will likely vary based on the Air Fryer brand you use and how crunchy you prefer your fish. At 10 minutes I flipped the fish. I then allowed them to cook for 10 more minutes, flipped them one last time, and cooked for 2 minutes.

EASY RECIPES LEMON GARLIC CHICKEN

Absolutely loved this recipe…pleased adults and our sometimes picky teenager! We all agreed this will be a new favorite to work into our rotation! It was easy to make, ingredients were simple and it’s full of flavor! Yummy!!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs (or whatever cut of chicken you have on hand)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • 35 sprigs fresh thyme (3 large sprigs or 5 small sprigs)
  • 1 large lemon
  • 1.5 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, roughly chopped

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large, oven-safe pan (I like to use a wide, deep skillet) over medium heat.
  3. Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Place chicken thighs in the hot pan and sear for 4-5 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  5. Remove chicken to a plate and set aside, then return pan to stove over medium-high heat.
  6. Add onion and garlic to pan and saute until onion is translucent and has started to caramelize, about 4 minutes. If pan is looking a little dry, add another drizzle of olive oil to help the onion cook.
  7. Pull leaves off of thyme sprigs and add leaves to the onions, then season with salt and pepper.
  8. Juice the lemon, removing any seeds, and add to the onion mixture. Stir to combine.
  9. Add chicken stock and spinach to onions and stir to combine. Bring mixture to a simmer, then return seared chicken thighs to pan and spoon some of the broth over the top of them to help them stay moist.
  10. Place pan in 400 degree oven, uncovered, and cook 15-20 minutes more until chicken is cooked through. Serve immediately.

NOTES

I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs because that’s what they had at my store, but I generally prefer to use bone-in, skin-on thighs because I feel like they have more flavor. You could also use chicken breasts, drumsticks, or whatever cut of meat you have on hand! Just keep an eye on it as it cooks, because you may have to adjust the cooking time depending on the cut of the meat.

I used chicken stock as the liquid in this recipe, but it would also be great with white wine! Just substitute 1/2 cup white wine for 1/2 cup of the chicken stock.

Optional: serve chicken over rice.

Love, love, love this salad! The dressing/marinade on the chicken is delicious. My boyfriend loves it so much that he wants to eat it every other day, so I said okay, no problem. Just so we won’t get tired of it I’m going to try it with grilled tuna one day, another day with grilled steak, another with salmon. Just to change it a bit, since we’re goin to eat it very often. Also I changed a few of the toppings by adding quinoa, mushrooms and broccoli. With that dressing can’t go wrong with what we add. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe.

HEALTHY RECIPES 1-BOWL CARROT APPLE MUFFINS (VEGAN + GF)

Wow! I made these for breakfast for my daughter’s vegan friend, and we all (non-vegans) ate them up. I used a chia seed egg (following your recipe, Dana–thanks!) and all-purpose flour for the almond meal and gluten-free flour, because that’s what I had on hand, and it took about 20 minutes to bake to perfection. I’ll definitely make these again! Thank you!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 batches flax eggs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup mashed very ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar or maple syrup (or honey if not vegan)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (or finely grated apple)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (or sub muscavado)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup plain almond milk (unsweetened)
  • 1 heaping cup (packed) grated carrot
  • 2/3 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1 heaping cup gluten-free flour blend
  • 1/4 cup raw walnuts (chopped // for topping)

Instructions

  1. Prepare flax eggs in a large mixing bowl and preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 C).
  2. Prepare muffin tin with liners or lightly grease them.
  3. To flax eggs, add mashed banana, agave or maple syrup, olive oil and whisk to combine.

  4. Next add applesauce, brown sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and whisk to combine.
  5. Add almond milk and stir.
  6. Add grated carrot and stir.
  7. Add oats, almond meal, and gluten-free flour blend and stir.
  8. Divide evenly among 12 muffin tins, filling them all the way up to the top, and top with crushed walnuts (optional).
  9. Bake for 32-36 minutes, or until deep golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. When you press on the top it shouldn’t feel too spongey, so don’t be afraid of over baking! The GF blend just takes longer to bake.
  10. Remove from oven and let set in the pan for 15 minutes. Then flip on their sides still in the pan to let cool completely.
  11. If you try to unwrap them too quickly, they have a tendency to stick to the wrappers.
  12. Once cooled, store in a covered container or bag at room temp to keep fresh. Freeze after that to keep fresh.

Notes

*Use 1 ½ Tbsp (10 g) flaxseed meal + 4 Tbsp (60 ml) water to make 1 1/2 flax eggs.
*You can sub 1 sweet apple in place of 1/2 cup applesauce.
*If baking in a loaf pan or cake pan (8×8), bake for 45 minutes – 1 hour and check every 5 minutes thereafter for doneness.

FOOD RECIPES LOW CARB TERIYAKI TURKEY BOWLS

Totally delicious! 40 minutes from start to clean up. To me it tastes like an Mongolian beef Chinese dish, which is wonderful because I have cravings for that all the time and now I can just make this! Thanks for the recipe!

Ingredients

For the teriyaki Turkey:
    • 16 oz 90% lean ground turkey
    • 1/4 cup soy sauce
    • 2 tbs hoisin sauce
    • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes*
    • 2 tbs honey
    • 1 tsp garlic powder
    • 3/4 cup water
    • 1 1/2 tbs cornstarch + 1/4 cup cold water
For the cauliflower rice:
  • 1 medium head cauliflower
  • 1 tbs soy sauce
  • salt (to taste)

Instructions

  1. In a medium nonstick skillet, cook the ground turkey fully until it is brown. Set aside. Combine all of the ingredients except for the cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water in a medium saucepan and place over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the mixture begins to bubble slightly. Mix the cornstarch with the cold water to make a slurry and add to the saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally. Once the sauce has reached a boil, remove from heat and add the pan of cooked ground turkey. Using a spoon, gently toss the turkey in the sauce to coat evenly.
  2. Add the washed cauliflower florets to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower had a crumby “rice-like” consistency. Spray a nonstick skillet and fry the cauliflower with the soy sauce until slightly tender, approx 5-7 minutes. Garnish with scallions and sesame seeds (optional).

Notes

*Although I personally did not find the sauce to be too spicy, feel free to omit the red pepper flakes if you wish, or adjust to your taste!

HEALTHY RECIPES CAULIFLOWER FRIED RICE

Made this tonight! Good for a first go at it! I will probably add another egg, also more soy, a hint more sesame oil. I used frozen riced cauliflower, so I think it may have been a larger amount than a medium head of cauliflower. I’m excited to eat dinner tonight! Thank you!

Ingredients
  • 1 medium head cauliflower
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tablespoons cooking oil (olive oil, grape seed oil, canola oil – whatever your preference)
  • 1/2 medium onion , chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1/2 cup diced frozen carrots
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce *for gluten-free use tamari
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • 2 green onions , diced
  • optional: kosher salt
  • more optional vegetables: celery , broccoli, corn, spinach
Directions
  1. Mince cauliflower into very small crumbled pieces, resembling the size of rice or larger because the cauliflower will shrink as it cooks. You can use a food processor to get this texture, but be careful to not process the cauliflower too much or it will become mushy. We prefer to hand mince everything to get the small texture, so it still remains firm when cooked.
  2. Heat large skillet on medium high heat. Add cooking oil, then add onion and garlic. Cook until soft and translucent.

  3. Add cauliflower and sauté until tender, but not mushy soft. Add the peas and carrots and stir until combined.
  4. Add the beaten egg, soy sauce, sesame oil and black pepper. Stir until the egg coats all of the cauliflower and becomes cooked.
  5. If needed, add additional kosher salt to taste. Add green onions and stir until everything is combined.
  6. Serve warm.
