CHICKEN PICCATTA

  • 12 oz chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/4cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/3 cup capers
  • 1 can artichoke hearts (packed in water, not oil)
  • 1 package sliced mushrooms
Coat chicken with flour. In a large skillet, cook garlic and oil over moderate heat, stirring constantly, until garlic is pale gold. Add chicken and brown 2-3 minutes on each side. Add lemon juice, artichokes, capers and mushrooms. Simmer, covered, for about 30-35 minutes. Turn and baste the chicken occasionally. Cook until chicken juices run clear.

4 servings, 5 POINTS each

If you have never tried capers, this is a great way to start. They add a nice spiciness to the sauce.

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
