Piccata Be Daring


2 8 oz pouches Daring Original Breaded Pieces, frozen
4 tbsp vegan butter, divided
2 medium shallots, minced
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1 cup vegetable stock
2 1/2 tbsp capers, roughly chopped
1 tsp lemon zest
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 tbsp chopped parsley, divided
1/2 tsp black pepper
Kosher salt, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper and arrange the Daring Breaded Pieces in one even layer. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes (flipping halfway through) or until crisp and golden-brown. Remove from the oven.

  2. Meanwhile, place a large skillet over medium heat. When hot, add 2 tbsp vegan butter, shallots, garlic and red pepper flakes. Sauté until translucent and fragrant, about 4 to 5 minutes, and add vegetable stock. Simmer over medium heat for 6 to 7 minutes or until reduced by half.
