What to serve with Simple Gluten-Free Chicken Piccata?

Chicken Piccata has a very flavorful lemon wine sauce making it easy to pair with rice or pasta as well as any vegetables. If you are staying with the gluten-free theme be sure to use a gluten-free pasta such as chickpea pasta. We served ours with rice and steamed broccoli.

This was one of the best chicken dishes I have ever made. We don’t eat a lot of chicken because I usually find it dry or boring. Oooh my was this fantastic.
