This take on an Italian classic is incredibly easy, low carb,
and diabetic friendly!

  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 Tbsp Vita Sana Eureka Lemon Olive Oil
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1/3 cup low sodium chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup drained capers
  • 1/4 cup Italian parsley minced
  • Slice each chicken breast in half lengthwise to get 2 thin chicken slices. If the chicken slices are very thick, flatten them slightly with a mallet or another heavy object (no more than 1/2 inch thick)
  • Spread the flour out thinly on a dinner plate. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Lightly dredge the chicken breast slices in the seasoned flour, shaking off excess flour. Set aside.
  • Heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat. When the oil is shimmering, add the chicken breast slices to the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes until browned. Turn the chicken slices over and brown on the other side. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Add the wine to the saute pan, stirring and scraping up the browned bits on the bottom of the pan.
  • Add the lemon juice and chicken stock. Increase the heat to high and boil until the sauce thickens, about 3 minutes.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and add the butter. Stir in the capers and parsley and add the chicken breast slices back to the pan to rewarm. Taste the sauce and adjust seasoning. 
  • Serve hot

  New Fermentation Kits at The Merry Peddler!
The Merry Peddler now carries a new line of fermenting, canning and sprouting products! Fermented foods have unique health benefits, especially for people with diabetes. Fermentation is one of the oldest methods of preserving food. It's what transforms milk into yogurt; cabbage into sauerkraut; soybeans into miso; and fruit into vinegar. Research shows that the acids in fermented foods- lactic and acetic- interfere with carbohydrates' turning into blood sugar, thereby reducing spikes, but that's not all! When we eat fermented foods, friendly bacteria are allowed to thrive in our intestines, guarding our cells and fighting off the bad bacteria that can make us sick. They may also boost immune response, lower bad cholesterol, raise good cholesterol, and even have anti-cancer properties.  Pick up one of our fermentation kits and start seeing the health benefits today!
