Being on an Alkaline diet does not mean you have to give up the proteins that you love. If you combine them with alkaline side dishes you should have a pretty good ratio of 80% 20%. This is the dinner I made for my mom and her friends. You can prepare this ahead of time so it is a very easy dish to entertain with. There is just enough left over for a second meal for two. The dinner menu, chicken piccata, roasted potatoes, summer squash and brussell sprouts,and a zucchini salad with almonds. The recipes follow this one.
Eight chicken breasts
½ cup spelt flour
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
¼ cup capers
½ cup lemon juice
½ cup vegetable broth
¼ cup clarified butter (optional)
¼ cup parsley, chopped
Salt and Pepper
Run a sharp knife down the center of the breast to create 2 thin pieces. Season with a little salt and pepper and dust with the spelt flour. Heat the oil in a large fry pan and in small batches just saute the chicken so it gets a little color. Then remove to an oven proof platter. Cover with tin foil and it can sit for an hour while you are doing other things. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and 15 minutes before you want to eat, put it in the oven for just 15 minutes. The sauce is easy. Put the lemon juice, vegetable stock, parsley and capers in the same saute pan and bring to a boil. Reduce to half. Pour in the butter and remove from the heat. Pour the sauce over the chicken. It’s that easy. Enjoy
