Kimberly Schlapman Shares Stuffed Mushroom Recipe

04/07/2013 at 02:30 PM EDT

Kimberly Schlapman is having some weekend. As one-quarter of the award winning country music group Little Big Town, she – along with them – is up for four Academy of Country Music Awards.

But between vying for prizes and touring, Schlapman is also enjoying the second season of her cooking show, Kimberly’s Simply Southern.

On her next episode (Saturday, April 13, at 1 p.m. ET), Schlapman is joined in the kitchen by fellow country singer Josh Turner, and the two bond over mushrooms and their kids.

“We found out the day before shooting that he doesn’t like mushrooms,” she says. “But he loved [doing the show] – I’m so glad I changed his mind on mushrooms.”

Sharing the cooking bug is Schlapman’s daughter Daisy, who “loves to cook – she calls the pink kitchen aid the blister.”

Already, the mother-daughter duo have clocked countless hours in the kitchen together. “She’ll call out ingredients to me and I’ll get them from the pantry,” Schlapman says. “She doesn’t measure and just dumps stuff in – they don’t look good, but they are tasty.”

This weekend, Schlapman will be joining country music’s elite in Las Vegas for the ACM Awards, and the singer is still surprised by all the accolades. “We have never had such a great lineup of nominations,” she exclaims. “It’s been a great year!”

Try Schlapman’s recipe below – and tune in for the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Sunday, April 7, at 8 p.m. on CBS.

“It will impress your guests,” says Rocco DiSpirito of his Italian Chicken recipe featured in this week’s PEOPLE. The bestselling cookbook author shares a healthy entree adapted from a recipe in his Now Eat This! Italian, in stores now:

Chicken Piccata

Serves 4

Olive oil cooking spray
8 boneless, skinless, thin-cut chicken cutlets (2 lbs.)
¾ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 ½ cups fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth
4 tsp. arrowroot or cornstarch, dissolved in 2 tsp. water
1 tsp. chopped fresh rosemary
4 thin lemon slices
3 tbsp. drained nonpareil capers
1 tbsp. unsalted butter

1. Preheat the oven to 350º.
2. Generously coat a 12-in. ovenproof skillet with cooking spray. Season chicken with salt and pepper on both sides.
3. Heat pan over high heat. Cook 2 or 3 cutlets at a time until lightly browned, 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining chicken, coating pan with cooking spray between batches.
4. Add chicken broth and bring to a simmer, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the dissolved arrow-root or corn-starch and whisk until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes.
Return chicken to the pan with rosemary, lemon slices and capers; gently simmer until chicken is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove chicken from pan and divide among 4 plates.
5. Add butter to sauce in pan and cook over high heat until slightly thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Spoon about ½ cup sauce over each plate. Serve.
