Chicken Piccata Meatballs (low FODMAP + Gluten Free)

Jump to recipe

One of my favorite dishes of all time is chicken piccata.  I love how the lemon and garlic flavors collide into pure deliciousness.  Using a garlic infused olive oil makes this recipe a great option for low FODMAP diet followers.  Today’s recipe is a take on chicken piccata…but made into meatballs. YEEEES, thank you!

I served these beauties over shredded spaghetti squash.  A great way to up your produce quota! I am all about eating more veggies whenever possible!  Using spiralized zucchini would work here too.  I am not ‘anti-pasta’ by any stretch of the imagination…but when I can swap in more veggies–I try to go for it.

Russ and I loved the spaghetti squash as the base for these delicious chicken piccata meatballs.

I mixed up the meatball mixture in the morning to save time at dinner time.  About 30 minutes before we planned to eat, I started to form the meatballs and browned them up.

 The piccata sauce takes just a minute to put together…so it is an easy recipe with a little prep.

These tasty meatballs will be on my menu rotation for sure.  Flavorful and nourishing.

Are you a chicken piccata fan too?

    This looks beyond amazing! Definitely making after Thanksgiving. My mouth is watering…lemon, capers and garlic, what a dream!

    This looks so yum! 🙂 I usually don’t have capers on hand however… actually, I don’t think I’ve ever had them! Is there are more everyday staple ingredient that could be used to substitute? Or is this one worth the extra space on the condiment shelf in the fridge? 🙂

        Thanks Kate! To be honest I haven’t even heard of piccata before… Following your blog has expanded my horizons with foods I never knew about! It’s always fun to learn, and taste something new!

    I’ve already made this twice in 5 days. These are so good and definitely a new kitchen staple! On the second – try to ease up on the fat content – I cut out all the butter and used ground chicken breast instead of thigh.

    The recipe is perfect as it is! I just wanted to see if it would taste okay a little lighter. I have your cookbook (love the chicken thighs recipe!) Thank you, Kate!

      Glad you liked the Chicken Piccata Meatball recipe! I tend to use chicken breast when a recipe calls for ground chicken–it is just my preferred flavor. It’s always fun to tweak a recipe to make it more of your own. 🙂

    I’m trying this tonight, but when is the lemon juice added to the sauce? It doesn’t show up in the recipe directions, and I’m unsure whether you intended it to be cooked in or added at the end?

      thanks for the catch! I can read my recipes 10 times over and miss an ingredient. Lemon juice can be added to broth or at end with the capers. I updated this–and added just prior to serving.
