Low Calorie Chicken Piccata Recipe – 5 Points +

Low Calorie Chicken Piccata Recipe – 5 Points +

This traditional Chicken Piccata Recipe gets a low calorie facelift today! Chicken Picatta has always been an Italian favorite, but it’s typically a dish laden with butter and oil. By making a few small changes to it, I was able to get a dish that offers just 5 Points + per serving, but that tastes like a delicious homemade Chicken Piccata recipe. The flavors are all still there (and even some butter too, I promise!). When I cooked this, I used the zero calorie orzo pasta from Miracle Noodle, and mixed the creamy, mushroom piccata sauce into it, and served the chicken breast on top. It bulked up the plate without adding any extra Points Plus. Just because you are a Weight Watcher doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite foods. Just skip the restaurant version of this dish and make it at home! It’s a healthy and easy weeknight dinner idea that the whole family can enjoy.
