Chicken Cutlets with Walnut Caper Brown Butter
Try this tasty Chicken Cutlets with Walnut Caper Brown Butter from the Huffington Post. Chicken cutlets are very low in fat with essentially zero saturated fat. Plus, they are low in cholesterol and they provide the body with much-needed high quality protein.
When it comes to nuts walnuts are among the healthiest. Walnuts are high in vitamin E (especially the healthy gamma-tocopherols), the B vitamins, and magnesium. They are high in antioxidants. While walnuts are generally high in fat this is in form of the healthy mono-unsaturated fats and polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are anti-inflammatory and eating walnuts has been shown to reduce CRP levels (C-reactive protein), an inflammatory marker and predictor of heart disease.
In addition to adding taste, capers are high in antioxidants particularly quercetin and rutin. Rutin helps keep the blood from clotting. Capers also contain healthy amounts of vitamin A and K and niacin.
Garlic is also high in antioxidants and contains allicin which stimulates nitric oxide release enabling blood vessels to relax improving blood flow. Garlic also inhibits the HMG-CoA reductase enzyme thus lowering cholesterol.
So satisfy your stomach and sense of taste while indulging in a healthy meal.
