Cashew Crusted Chicken

No marinating, minimal ingredients, less then 30 minutes....

I usually don't make chicken Breast because I find the meat can be quick to over cook and become dry (no fun for the tastebuds). However that has all changed with this new recipe! Let's get to it...


  • 2 ChickenBreast (4oz)

  • 3 Tablespoons Avocado oil (or olive)

  • 1/2 cup dry roasted cashews

  • 1 small clove garlic (add more if you like a lot of garlic)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • *optional squeeze of lemon*


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F

  2. In a small food processor (or finely chopped by hand) add the roasted cashews, oil, garlic clove, pinch of salt/pepper. Blend until finely grated.

  3. Place chicken Breast on parchment paper or greased pan, season with salt/pepper first then evenly coat the top with your cashew blend.

  4. Place in oven for 15-18 min. (until your chicken reaches 165 degrees)

Let Rest for at least 3-5 min before cutting into your chicken. Pairs this with a fresh green salad, brown rice or roasted vegetables (my favorite). The cashews create such a beautiful crust. It's a perfect crunch on the first bite and develops into a delicious creamy texture. The garlic is very subtle but gives the flavor more body.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!

Perfect for a weeknight meal but your tastebuds will think it's a special occasion.
