Pistachio Chicken

Thanks again to my college roommate Lisa for this recipe shared from her brother Brian...I remember Brian visited us at Kearney Dorm our freshmen year and thinking how sophisticated he was. Oh, to be young again.

Pistachio Chicken

I received this recipe from my brother who created it himself. Chicken is very moist!! Can serve as many people as needed. South Beach Diet Phase 1 friendly!

What you need:
Grind up a bunch of pistachios (out of their shells).
1 c whole pistachio. per 4 pieces of chicken.
Grind up shredded parmesan cheese - ¾ c shredded per 4 pieces chicken
1 egg – beaten (more chicken requires more egg)
Boneless chicken breasts

What you do:
  1. Spray baking pan with cooking spray
  2. In food processor: grind pistachios, then add parmesan cheese and grind again
  3. Place nut and cheese mixture in a flat pan
  4. Roll chicken in the beaten egg and roll in nut/cheese mixture until coated on both sides
  5. Place in pan and bake at 350 for 30 min
