Pistachio Crusted Chicken

This recipe was inspired by a bag of pistachios I’ve had in my pantry and some chicken that needed to be cooked – touching, I know. But really, this is a healthy dish that everyone will love – it’s really high in protein/low in carbs and sugars which is always a bonus.

What you’ll need:

  • 1.5 lbs chicken breast (sliced thin)
  • 1 cup shelled pistachios
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 6 tsps dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F
  2. In a food processor, combine the pistachios and oats – pulse until desired consistency. Next add the honey, mustard, and olive oil. Combine
  3. Coat the chicken with the pistachio mixture, make sure to coat it as much as possible (some will probably fall off easily)
  4. *optional* saute the chicken in a pan on both sides for a couple mins
  5. Place in the oven for about 15-20 mins (depending on thickness of chicken)
  6. Serve it on up!

***I also made a sauce to balance the flavor using plain greek yogurt, juice from an orange, dijon mustard, garlic, sesame seeds, and some salt – healthy and yummy!

Served with a side of tortelini alfredo (healthy I swear…) – yummy!
