Sliced Lemon Pistachio Chicken Over Greens

Sliced Lemon Pistachio Chicken over Greens

I had the pleasure of working in the kitchen with my mom last Sunday to make this recipe. She had this chicken dish at a small dinner party and loved it. I wanted to try it in hopes that it was worthy of sharing with you and is it ever!

The chicken is brushed with honey (we preferred to drizzle it right on there) and then coated with a wonderful combination of cornflakes, pistachios and lemon zest. I must confess, I tend to leave the lemon zest out of recipes, but the flavor of the lemon with all the other ingredients was sinfully good. This tasted more like a lemon dessert (stange as that sounds!)

    First recipe I’ve seen making chicken with pistachios and chicken is my favorite. I’ll try about anything with it. This looks like it turned out so yummy too

    This recipe sounds so wonderful and different for me to try. I do love pistachios and I never thought to use them with chicken.

    I love using corn flakes in recipes. My mom used crackers as toppings a lot. I’m tempted to use more pistachios since they are so good for you.
