Happy Independence Day everyone! I hope everyone gets to enjoy a fun and safe long weekend with family and friends. Today I’m sharing a very filling recipe that was one of my favorites growing up, pistachio chicken. It’s pretty simple to make and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. Because the chicken is coated in fatty pistachios, one piece is very filling, so a little chicken goes a long way.
– Chicken breast strips
– Shelled pistachios (TJ’s sells them already shelled in raw or roasted and salted, both work for this recipe depending on your saltiness level preference)
– 1-2 eggs
– Pre-set the oven to 350 oF
– Put pistachios in a plastic bag, cover with a towel and hit with a hammer or meat tenderizer to crush. Leave some chunks and allow for some of it to become pretty fine so it sticks to the chicken. Once they’re crushed, place in a bowl.
– Put some olive oil in a frying pan on medium to med-high heat
– Dip chicken strip into egg and then in the bowl of crushed pistachios to coat the strip
– Fry the chicken strips on both sizes so that the outside of the chicken is cooked, and then place fried chicken strip in a glass baking dish. Add any pistachios left over in the frying pan to the top of the chicken strips in the baking dish.
– Cover the baking dish with foil to keep in moist and bake for 20-40 minutes depending on the thickness of the chicken strips.
– Serve with a vegetable like grilled asparagus and enjoy!
