Pistachio Chicken

Submitted by: DWAN1969

Introduction

This is a South Beach Diet Phase 1 recipe that I love...and so does everyone else that I cook for....The ingredients listed above may differ in amounts according to the weight of the chicken and how many pistachios are used so you will need to recalculate the nutritional information each time. I allow 3 oz of chicken per serving as a serving size.

Ingredients

    pistachio nuts, salted or unsalted (I used salted) finely ground in the food processor
    chicken breast cutlets (I use the very thin cutlets)

Directions

Grind the nuts in the food processor until they are the consistency of bread crumbs. Mix some salt and pepper in with the nuts and pour onto a plate. Dredge the chicken in the pistachio nuts just as you would dredge it in breading. Place chicken in a baking dish coated with non stick cooking spray. Bake in a 350 degree oven for approx 30-40 minutes, which depends on the thickness of your chicken.

Serving size = 3 oz

  • I spread honey on top of chicken breasts then I topped with pistachios. I spread nuts on top of wax paper then folded over and used a rolling pin to finely crush. - 1/15/10
