Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.

In a food processor, pulse Tropical Food’s Buffalo Nuts® and toasted bread until coarsely ground; transfer to a medium bowl.

In another medium bowl beat eggs, season generously with salt and pepper. Pour flour into a third medium bowl and set up a breading station.

Dredge chicken breasts in flour, then coat in egg and finally roll in Buffalo Nuts® breading, until completely coated. Transfer to prepared baking sheet.

Bake 15-20 minutes until chicken reaches 165 degrees.

Put goat cheese on top of each hot chicken breast.

Garnish with mixed habaneras and parsley.
