Creating a healthy meal for your family has never been easier. 15 minutes is all you need to make this easy Chicken Piccata start to finish. Create this easy chicken recipe on a weeknight at home, on a weekend camping trip with a two burner camp stove, or while vacationing in a basic kitchenette. With just a few ingredients, you’ll be cooking up a dish your family will love anywhere they are.
With this Easy Chicken Piccata recipe, I like to serve it with a green salad, fresh broccoli and No Yolks Broad Egg Noodles. Broccoli isn’t traditional in this recipe, but I like to add it because:
- Broccoli adds a vegetable to the plate that I know my kids will always eat.
- The broccoli mixed with the buttery lemon caper sauce is something the kids ABSOLUTELY LOVE and will gobble it up.
- It is available in stores year around and travels well if I’m making this recipe camping.
I will either steam the broccoli while I’m cooking every thing else or I will add the florets to the noodles the last 2-3 minutes they are cooking.
The noodles I’m using are these No Yolks Broad Noodles. They are a really versatile noodle and are great in casseroles and fall favorites like beef stroganoff or cheesy butter noodles. But they are also great is soups like Miso and a French Onion. I’ll even swap out traditional noodles for these in a Chicken Noodle Soup. The kids love it!
You can find No Yolks Noodles in a store near you in different varieties including Broad, Extra Broad, Fine, Kluski, Dumplings, and now Stir-Fry. They are a healthy egg noodle alternative, made from egg whites and no cholesterol. They are also low in fat and sodium.

Before I give you the recipe for my Easy Chicken Piccata, I want to give you a tip to creating this recipe in under 15 minutes.
My helpful hand tip: Buy thinner chicken breasts or cut anything larger than 1” thick into smaller sections.
I’m not sure what is up with these monstrous huge chicken breasts. But they take forever to cook. Skip those and go for thinner breasts. That’s it! Now enjoy this recipe and then enter to win in the giveaway.
