  • 1 1/3 lb. Boneless, skinless chicken breast (I used 2 large breast then I sliced each lengthwise to make 4 breasts)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (can use regular olive oil_
  • 2 lemons (Juice one lemon and cut other into slices)
  • 1 clove garlic (cut into 3 slices (fodmap) or chopped)
  • 1/8 cup capers (drain of brine)
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock/bone broth (I use my homemade recipe)
  • 1/4 cup parsley (Chopped)
  • 1 tsp ghee (I use my homemade recipe)
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot flour (Tapioca starch would probably work also.)


  1. Heat skillet to medium/low and add 2 tbsp olive oil.  Swirl around the pan to coat.

  2. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. 

  3. Add chicken breasts to skillet and cook 4-5 minutes per side until browned and cooked through.  (When cooking chicken, I like to use a thermometer to make sure internal temperature reaches 170 degrees).

  4. Transfer chicken to a plate.  Add lemon slices to skillet and cook on each side for about 1 minutes until browned. Remove to plate.

  5. To skillet, add the garlic and capers and cook for about 1-2 minutes.  If following fodmaps diet, remove garlic pieces.  If not, they can remain.  Add wine and cook for about another 1-2 minutes.

  6. Next, to skillet, add chicken stock/bone broth, ghee and stir in arrowroot flour until combined.  Stir for 1-2 minutes until starts to thicken and sauce is combined.  Turn off heat. Add 1 tablespoon lemon juice (or to taste) and parsley.

  7. Two options - you can place chicken on plates, pour sauce and lemons over and serve.

    I usually place the chicken in a casserole dish type pan, pour sauce over and bake for about 10 minutes.  Then plate chicken and add lemon slices and serve.  I often take the extra step of checking on a thermometer that chicken has reached 170 degrees.
