  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp capers, drained
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, Parmesan cheese, almond flour, egg, minced garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Mix well until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  3. Shape the mixture into small meatballs about 1 inch in diameter.
  4. In a large oven-safe skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs and cook until browned on all sides, about 5-7 minutes.

  7. Stir in the capers and butter, allowing the butter to melt completely.
  8. Remove the meatballs from the oven and pour the piccata sauce over them.
  9. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve hot.
