This Chicken Piccata recipe is made super easy with Tyson® Individually Frozen Thin Sliced Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts! Already sliced and thin and able to be cooked from frozen, the hard part is done!
  • 4 Tyson┬« Individually Frozen Thin Sliced Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • All-purpose flour, for dredging
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ⅓ cup fresh lemon juice
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • ¼ cup brined capers, rinsed
  • ⅓ cup fresh Italian, flat leafed parsley, chopped
  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper, even thought it is frozen. Push the frozen chicken breast into the flour to coat. This seems like it would not work with frozen, but it does! In a large skillet over medium high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter with 3 tablespoons olive oil. When butter and oil start to sizzle, add 2 pieces of chicken and cook for 7-9 minutes, until cooked through. When chicken is browned, flip and cook other side for 3 - 5 minutes. Remove and transfer to a plate. Melt 2 more tablespoons butter and add another 2 tablespoons olive oil. When butter and oil start to sizzle, add the other 2 pieces of chicken and brown both sides in same manner. Remove the pan from the heat and add chicken to the plate. In the same pan, add the lemon juice, stock and capers. Return to the stove and bring to boil, scraping up brown bits from the pan for extra flavor. You can taste to see if it is seasoned well and add salt and pepper if needed. Return all the chicken to the pan and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove chicken to platter. Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter to sauce and whisk vigorously. Pour sauce over chicken and garnish with parsley.
