INGREDIENTS

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 cup capers drained
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 lemons zested and juiced (1/4 cup lemon juice)
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Slice the chicken breasts in half along the length to make them thinner. Pat dry with a paper towel. Season both sides of each chicken breast with salt and pepper.
  • Prepare a shallow plate containing almond flour. Place each chicken breast in the flour to coat both sides and shake off the excess.
  • In a wide nonstick pan, add olive oil and 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat, stirring until the butter is melted and the pan is hot.
  • Add chicken breasts in a single layer. Cook until each side is golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. When the chicken is cooked through, transfer to a plate. Work in batches if your pan is not large enough to hold them all at once.
  • Reduce to low heat. Add heavy cream, 1/4 cup lemon juice, and capers. Stir everything together, scraping up any bits that have stuck to the pan.
  • Increase heat to bring to a simmer. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir in remaining 2 tablespoons of butter until melted.
  • Transfer the chicken back to the pan and simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from heat. Top with chopped parsley and lemon zest. Optionally garnish with additional lemon slices. Serve while hot.
