Chicken Piccata

It's officially summer and my family and I are spending a lot of our time outside enjoying the warm weather.   All the fun in the sun is making me spend less time in the kitchen and wanting to eat lighter dishes.  My family loves flavorful food and they count on me to deliver a tasty meal for them to enjoy for dinner every night.

This Chicken Piccata is featured in a wonderful cookbook called Living the Mediterranean Diet Proven Principles & Modern Recipes for Staying Healthy by Nick Nigro & Bay Ewald with Rea Frey.    The Mediterranean Diet focuses on light, fresh and delicious meals to enjoy all year long.  

They even divided the book into seasons and although this Chicken Piccata is featured in the winter section of the book, I think it's also perfect for the summer since it's light and citrusy.  

My family loved the flavors of the lemon, capers and garlic that created a velvet like sauce for the lightly battered chicken.  I also loved that the dish only took me 30 minutes in total to make and I was out of the kitchen fast.  We ate it with a green salad to make it a lighter meal for the summer.  The dish would also work wonderfully with an array of sauteed or roasted vegetables and/or pasta.

This cookbook is loaded with wonderful dishes that are made using whole and unprocessed ingredients.  Many of the dishes are plant based so you will automatically get those fruits and vegetables we all strive to get in our daily diet.  

It maybe called the Mediterranean Diet, but it's not a diet at all.  It's simply a wonderful cookbook that is full of delicious dishes that will give you great ideas on eating better and living a healthier lifestyle.   

Some of the wonderful recipes this cookbook has are:
  • Asparagus, Prosciutto, and Mushroom Pizza
  • Tuna Steaks with Caper, Olive, and Sun-Dried Tomato Relish
  • Caprese Boats
  • Orange and Fennel Salad with White Wine Citrus Dressing
  • Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Honey Crisp Apples
  • Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs
  • Seared Scallops over Spinach
  • Quinoa Kale Salad with Roasted Butternut Squash

 This is the recipe that I made for you today: 


This cookbook is definitely going to be one that I turn to all summer long and throughout the year.  I love how they encourage healthful eating with every recipe.
