Peanut-Crusted Chicken

This is a high-protein, low-fat recipe:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast fillets
  • 1 cup salted peanuts, ground in a blender or coffee grinder until coarsely chopped (don’t overgrind or it will turn into peanut butter)
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • salt & pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Lightly salt and pepper the fillets, brush on a coating of honey, and then roll in the chopped peanuts.  Press the coating into the chicken with the back of a tablespoon.  Bake for 45 minutes or until crusty brown on top.

If you don’t want to heat up the oven, you can cook on stove top in olive oil preheated on medium high.  As soon as the chicken is in the skillet, reduce heat to medium and cook until golden brown, about 30-45 minutes.
