I don't know if you've ever coated a chicken in nuts before but
The nuts toast nicely and the chicken stays moist
PERFECT combination in my opinion.
These nuts, on their own, are pretty powerful and spicy but once cooked- the heat mellows down nicely.
THAI LIME CASHEW ENCRUSTED CHICKEN
(makes 2 chicken breast; easily doubled)
2 boneless skinless chicken breast
3/4 C Trader Joe's Thai Lime Cashews
Olive Oil/ Olive oil spray
Coat a skillet with olive oil. Using a food processor coarsely grind the nuts and empty onto a plate. Spray chicken with olive oil spray (this will help cashews adhere to the chicken) and place chicken in ground cashews to coat evenly. Heat in skillet over medium heat, turning once, until cooked thoroughly (180*)
I served with Trader Joe's Kimchi Rice
