Using fresh ingredients like chicken, capers, garlic and sun dried tomatoes, sautéed in a white wine sauce… has to be delicious!
This is one of Liz’s favorite chicken dishes that she created, and many of her friends have come to enjoy. When Liz creates a new recipe, she is always thinking about how she can make one that is healthy and low calorie at the same time, especially since she started her weight watchers program.
It’s a quick and easy one pan dish to make for dinner any time. You can make this dish in less than 15 minutes. Also try this dish with Lemon Sole fish fillets instead of the chicken. Enjoy!
Chicken with Arugula and Wine, created by Liz
- 2 Tbsp. of Olive oil
- 3 Garlic Cloves – sliced
- 1 (10-16 ounce) container of Baby Arugula- washed and dried
- 4 thin Chicken Cutlets
- 6 Sun Dried Tomatoes (not in oil)- chopped
- 2 Tbsp. Capers – rinsed
- 1 cup Dry White Wine
- 1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
- season with salt and pepper to taste
In a non stick skillet, heat oil and add the sliced garlic and sauté until golden on both sides.
Add baby arugula, turning while cooking to mix with olive oil. Once the arugula is sautéed (to a slightly darker green) it reduces in size, push to one side of the skillet.
Place the chicken cutlets into the skillet and grill them for a few minutes until golden on both sides.
Add capers, sun dried tomatoes and white wine.
While you’re at it, pour yourself a glass of wine too…. it makes cooking more enjoyable.
Season with some salt and pepper to taste. Add garlic powder and simmer for a few minutes until the wine has reduced a little.
Transfer to a serving platter and serve. Enjoy!
Serves 2….. but you can double the recipe for family portions, as in photo.
