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...

Ingredients:

  • 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*

Directions:

  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.
