Chicken Piccata Video Transcript:
Hi, Kristi at the Rada Kitchen, and today I’m making chicken piccata. You make the recipe from the Rada scampi sauce. You’ll need 2-4 skinless, boneless chicken breast that I’ve pounded thin, a package of Rada Quick Mix Scampi Sauce, a can of artichoke hearts, a tablespoon of olive oil, two tablespoons of lemon juice, and a cup and a half of water.
We’re going to make this recipe on our stove top. So first we’re going to heat about a half a tablespoon of olive oil on medium heat in a non-stick pan. Then the chicken that you pounded, we’re going to cut into pieces. This is a Rada Granny Fork, it works really good to hold meat while you’re cutting it. It turns meat easily in the pan when you’re frying it.
Cut them to the size you prefer. When our oil gets hot, we’ll put it in the pan. Cook it three to four minutes on each side.
My chicken has cooked 3-4 minutes on each side. Now if your pan is big enough, you can remove these to a plate. You’ll make your sauce right in this pan. My pan’s kind of small, so I’m going to switch and make my sauce in a bigger pan. To this, you’ll add a cup and a half of water, the scampi sauce mix, two tablespoons of lemon juice, then you’ll stir this together.
Now I’ll add my can of quartered artichoke hearts. Then you’ll add back in the chicken. That’s going to simmer about 5-7 minutes on low.
Delicious, homemade chicken piccata using the Rada Scampi Sauce. This is great with sauteed vegetables or our garlic parmesan bread that we also made from the Scampi Sauce. You can find this recipe and more at RadaQuickMixRecipes.com.
