In between answering emails, answering the phone, managing schedules, and all of the day-to-day tasks that take up so much of our days, we're all craving something fast, easy, and efficient when it comes to what we cook at home. That's just one of the many reasons we're often reaching for Minute Mashers™ mashed potatoes from our friends at Green Giant™ Fresh.

Minute Mashers™ makes it easy to add a delicious vegetable side-dish to every meal with their unique COOK, MASH, SERVE recipe. Minute Mashers™ are totally cooked after just seven minutes in the microwave! Then simply mash to your desired consistency and tear open the bag to serve immediately for fresh flavor without the wait.

Inside the package are real, farm-fresh, petite potatoes grown by the potato experts at Green Giant™ Fresh. In addition to potatoes, there's also real butter and chef-inspired seasonings, just like the ones you use in your own kitchen to season and flavor your meals. For this recipe, we love the herbaceous Buttery Chive & Dill Minute Mashers™ – but truly any of the Minute Mashers™ flavors would be absolutely delicious with this Chicken Piccata recipe. Other Minute Mashers™ flavors include: Buttery Roasted Garlic and Buttery Sea Salt & Pepper.

If you've never made Chicken Piccata before, here's a few tips and tricks to making the best Chicken Picatta recipe:

  • Chicken: If you can't find chicken cutlets, simply slice boneless skinless chicken breasts in half lengthwise so you'll have to even halves. Think of it as a thinner chicken breast. Alternatively, you can cover boneless skinless chicken breasts with plastic wrap and pound with a meat tenderizer making sure you achieve even thickness so the breast will cook evenly.
  • Capers: Capers are one of the main ingredients in Chicken Picatta but if you're not a fan or don't have them on-hand, try using sliced green olives instead.
  • Flour: After covering the chicken in flour on both sides, make sure you shake to remove excess flour. But you want to make sure the chicken pieces are covered on all sides.
  • Vegetarian Options: More people are eating plant-based so we wanted to provide a vegetarian option. Although we haven't tested these options, we think Seitan or Tofu would work well as a meat substitute in this recipe.
