Pistachio Crusted Chicken Breast Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 small chicken breasts (about 1 lb.)

  • 1/4 cup roasted pistachios, shelled and crushed

  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Dry chicken with paper towel.

  3. Salt and pepper both sides of chicken. Spread the dijon mustard on the top of chicken breasts. Press pistachios onto the top of the chicken.

  4. Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of your chicken.

Enjoy!


Note: you can always sub half of the crushed pistachios for panko breadcrumbs for a chicken tender like texture.


Bonus tip: sub out pistachios, if they aren't your thing, for any other crushed nut.
