I have been making Chicken Scallopini for as long as I can remember. Some of you may well wonder what the heck is Chicken Scallopini? It’s just a fancy name for chicken cutlets that are usually pounded out very thin so that they cook very quickly. It is Italian in origin and is traditionally served with pasta. I serve it with a salad or with a vegetable on the side and truth be told, I don’t miss the pasta at all.
Chicken Scallopini is a perfect low carb option. It showcase just how wonderfully delicious living low carb living can be. Please do keep in mind though that this dish is by no means a low calorie meal, so adhere to the portion sizes. You still have to create a caloric deficit if you want to continue losing on your low carb journey. Just so you know though, it is options like this that continue to keep me on track, supremely satisfied and motivated.
The Game Changing Element
This Chicken Scallopini is a game changer. What makes it a game changer is I amp up the flavor profile of the lemon. Lemon is the star of the show here and it really shines through because of the addition of lemon zest. The simple addition of that single element takes this dish from ordinary to extraordinary. It is infused with lemon flavor that is gonna have you happy dancing all over the kitchen.
The best part though is that It is super easy to throw together and make for your family and friends. I am willing to bet that everyone is going to think you slaved over a hot stove for hours. If you want to amp up the drama dab your face and clothes with flour after your done so that they ooh and aah over your not so very difficult effort in the kitchen. I guarantee though that this is going to be something everyone is going to be begging you to make over and over again. Here’s to changing the way you live low carb. From my kitchen to yours, happy low carbing. Mike
