Loaded with protein and antioxidants

Since I like diversity in my life, I decided to include something new in this blog: A family-friendly healthy recipe...


Nut-crusted Pomegranate Chicken
Delicious served with creamy noodles, a crispy salad, and fresh bread!

Ingredients:

3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1.5 -2 lb)
¾ cup seasoned bread crumbs
½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans
2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
1 container pomegranate-berry yogurt (I use fat-free Stonyfield)
1 egg, beaten
1 tbsp. water
3 tbsp. olive oil

Directions:
  1. Place chicken between pieces of waxed paper.  Pound with meat mallet or rolling pin until thin.
    In a shallow dish mix bread crumbs, pecans, and parsley.
  2. In a separate dish combine yogurt, egg, and water.
  3. Dip chicken into yogurt, then coat with crumb mixture.
  4. Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium heat until hot.  Cook chicken 10-12 minutes, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink in the middle and coating is golden brown.
Makes 3-4 servings
