2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Make the salad

  • Thinly slice the Brussels sprouts crosswise.
  • Core and thinly slice the apple.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. Set aside half for the piccata sauce.
In a large bowl, stir together the slaw dressing base and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil. Add the Brussels sprouts, apple, and half the parsley and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep and cook the chicken and sauce

  • Measure ½ cup [1 cup] vegetable broth; save the rest for another use.
  • Juice the lemon.
  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
  • On a plate or shallow bowl, season the arrowroot powder with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer.
  • Dredge the chicken in the arrowroot powder, turning to coat; shake off any excess.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Add the capers, ½ cup [1 cup] vegetable broth, and ¼ cup white wine (from your pantry), if using, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a vigorous simmer and cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan and turning the chicken halfway through, until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is thickened slightly, 4 to 6 minutes.
Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining parsley and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the chicken and salad to individual plates. Top the chicken with the piccata sauce and serve.
