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)

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.
