Ingredients

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast (recommended but can use any skinless chicken)
  • 1/2 c shelled pistacios
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Directions

  • Preheat broiler to high
  • Place pistacios in a food processor and pulse until pistacios are coarsely ground (be careful not to let it go too long or you will have pistacio butter!)
  • Remove pistacios from food processor, place in a shallow bowl, add salt and pepper
  • Slice chicken breast into thin strips
  • lightly coat chicken in pistacios
  • place on a broiling pan or oven sheet and cook on high for 6 minutes (or until cooked all the way through)
  • remove and set aside for 10 minutes
  • Honey Dijon Sauce
  • Honey-Mustard Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • In a small bowl, stir together the mustard and mayonnaise until smooth. Stir in the honey.
  • Serves 2

Notes

A great way to add flavor and healthy fat to your meals is to add a small amount of nuts. These crunchy chicken tenders are great over salad greens, nearly any cooked vegetables and on their own with yummy home-made honey dijon sauce (recipe included). These guys cook up quickly in the broiler but you can also bake them if you wish.
