When your chef skills are on fleek!!! 👊🏼 Sometimes I create something that's so good I HAVE to share it! Like last night!! I made chicken piccata which is crusted chicken in a lemon sauce. It was honestly pretty easy and only took about 30 minutes, but did leave a wicked mess in my kitchen. #ooops #worthit
- Chicken tenderloins/breasts
- Two eggs
- Panko breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- pinch of cayenne pepper
- 2 tbs. grass fed butter
- 1 cup chicken stock
- a few tbs. lemon juice
- additional seasoning and capers, if desired
- brown rice, if desired
- Start with some chicken tenderloins on filets of chicken breast, trimmed. You can pound the chicken flat but I was too impatient to do this and the chicken I used worked just fine :)
- Set up a station where you can dunk the chicken in two mixtures, in two different bowls. One bowl has two eggs and a little water whisked together. The second bowl has breadcrumbs (Panko is my FAV) with about 1/4 cup grated parm and a pinch of cayenne pepper. First dunk in the egg mixture, then the breadcrumb mixture. Use your hands to pat the mixture on the chicken. Give it some love <3
- Add the chicken to a pan that has been heating up with a little extra virgin olive oil in it and cook for 7-10 minutes per side, depending on your pan. Once both sides are crispy, remove the chicken (even if it's not cooked all the way through) and add 2 TBS of grass fed butter to the pan. Once that's melted, add a cup of chicken stock to the pan and use your spoon or spatula to scrape the little bits off the bottom of the pan. That is your flavor! Add a few TBS of lemon juice and let the sauce boil. Once it's boiling, reduce the heat and add your chicken breasts back in the pan. Cook a few more minutes until the chicken is cooked through. This is a good time to check for seasoning, add some parsley, etc. REAL chicken picatta calls for capers but I LITERALLY cannot find these EVER in my grocery store so I went without them

I served this over brown rice and even my kids loved it!!! Feel free to adjust measurements to your tastes. Enjoy!!
This Crockpot Chicken is great to use for tacos, nachos or topped on a salad. Plus, it is super simple, throw the ingredients into the crockpot and let it cook itself. How easy can that be? And, as a busy mom, that is what we are looking for in a meal! Simple, delicious and easy! Ingredients:
- 4-6 chicken breasts
- 1 cup chicken stock
- 1/2 cup salsa
- 1 packet taco seasoning
- 4 oz. can chilies, chopped
- Add all the ingredients to the crockpot.
- Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
- Use tongs to pull the chicken apart.
This chicken is great in whole wheat tortillas with shredded cheddar, tomatoes, avocado, lettuce, and greek yogurt. Or, serve it a top a blue tortilla chips for nachos.
