Vegan Chicken Piccata

I absolutely adore capers! And growing up I don’t think I’ve ever had chicken piccata… So, why not try it out now? And vegan, EVEN BETTER!

This recipe is one serving:

2 chicken cutlets (Gardein)
1/8 cup soy milk (unflavored)
1/8 cup whole wheat flower
1 teaspoon dried parsley
3 tablespoons butter (Earth Balance)
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of half a lemon
1/2 cup dry white wine
2 tablespoons capers
1 tablespoon fresh parsley

Pour milk into a dish.

Mix flour, dried parsley, salt and pepper into a second dish.

Dip chicken into milk and dredge in flour mixture.

Melt butter in a sauté pan and sautéed chicken until browned on both sides.

Remove chicken and add lemon zest, juice and wine.

Reduce and thicken. Whisk in flour if needed and add capers.

Pout over chicken and voila!

Salt and pepper to taste and top with fresh parsley!

—this was a bit too lemony for me, do next time I’ll add less lemon juice, if any at all.

Serve with veggies, rice or macaroni!

Overall a success and I’ll definelty make it again!

Peace, Love, Vegan

About Sheenagh Caridi

I am 28 years old & I've decided to start to live a healthier life. It's obvious that I am not getting any younger & I want to make sure I am at my healthiest for when I get married & start to have children. I've been a vegetarian for 14 years, but have not made the best decisions, cheese, pasta & bread is an awful diet to survive on. I work crazy work hours, & find it impossible to sleep, let alone make positive food choices. I've recently decided to be completely vegan, not only does animal cruelty hurt my soul, but the effects of a vegan lifestyle help our earth & hugely help our bodies. It comes down to making an effort to getting up & making everything you consume. We all need to learn how to fuel our bodies with the right foods. You only have one life & one body, make it all ridiculously amazing. Peace, Love, Vegan

  1. Hi Sheenagh. I do not understand how you can have chicken in a vegan recipe. I count all animal products, meat both red and white, eggs, milk, cheese and honey as animal products and therefore non-vegan. Heather

    • Do you follow a vegan lifestyle? This recipe is 100% strictly vegan.
      Gardein is a vegetable based imitation chicken protein patty, no animals.
      The butter is a soy based vegan butter, no dairy.
      I don’t use eggs or honey in this recipe or do I ever consume it.
      My white wine is organic and vegan friendly. I read every ingredient and if I am unsure I research my alcoholic beverages or do not use them.

      I do not eat cheese. Only follow your heart cheese which is a vegan soy based imitation cheese, no dairy.

      I do not use milk, only soy or almond milk, again no dairy.

      How’s that for a response? You should do your research before you attack people.

      • Dear Sheengh, Sorry no attack was intended. I liked your blog and the recipe but I live in Australia and have not come across this product. We do get nut burgers so I shall look and push our supermarket for more of these products. Keep up the good work. Heather.
