Ingredients You'll Need

Serves 4
8 oz. oil,

1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper,
Egg wash (2 whole eggs (egg beaters) beaten plus 2 cups skim milk),
1 cup flour,
2 tablespoons crushed hazelnuts,
2 tablespoons breadcrumbs,
4 tablespoons sundried cherries,
4 tablespoons chopped hazelnuts
4 tablespoons chopped parsley,
8 oz. hazelnut sauce (recipe follows)


Pound each chicken breast with mallet. Season with salt and pepper. Mix two tablespoons

crushed hazelnuts with two tablespoons breadcrumbs. Dip each breast in flour, then egg

wash, and then roll each breast in hazelnut/breadcrumb mixture. Place sauté pan over

medium high heat. Add oil. Add chicken and sauté until toasted, approximately 2 1/2 to 3

minutes. Using spatula, carefully turn chicken over and sauté second side until golden

brown, approximately 3 to 4 minutes. Spoon hazelnut sauce over chicken. Sprinkle

sundried cherries, hazelnuts and parsley evenly over each chicken breast.

boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 5 minutes. Using hand

mixer, puree until small pieces of sundried cherries are left; do not puree smooth. Add

hazelnut liquor; stir to blend. Cool and refrigerate until needed.
