i found another recipe in coastal living magazine that worked out very well, coming together for dinner in thirty minutes. a chicken breast is covered in heart healthy nuts and baked for 20 minutes. then, out of the oven, sliced and served with your favorite vegetables.
i used chopped pecans, but pistachios would also be a great flavor combination.
to make the recipe: preheat the oven to 375 degrees. line a baking sheet with parchment paper. mix the following ingredients in a small bowl– 1 tablespoon orange juice, 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard, salt and pepper to taste. coat each side of a chicken breast with these ingredients, then dip in chopped nuts. i used about 1/2 cup of nuts.
place chicken on baking sheet, and bake for 20-25 minutes. slice and serve with dill carrots (featured on this blog) or your favorite vegetable.
