finely chopped walnuts
salt, to taste
boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into thin strips
Really quick and really easy! To try and make the recipe a little healthier, I used only the egg white and skim milk. I also put in more a little more walnut and went light on the flour (to cut carbs and up the protein) And finally I omitted the butter and just used olive oil. I really just love how crisp the breading gets and how juicy the chicken stays!
our family did not care for this - it was ok
my review is only 3, dredged in seasoned flour first then egg wash then in pecan crumbs and panko, pecan was to large needs to be fine crumbs otherwise was great, the original recipe was a 5 except should dredge in flour fie=rst , it makes the rest stick better
This is my new FAVORITE chicken recipe! I made my tenders very thin and used a bladed-meat tenderizer, because I am very particular about my chicken consistency. I made the mistake of not chopping the walnuts small enough, which made breading a bit messy. Next time I'll fine-chop my walnuts and this recipe will be absolutely superb. Thanks!
This is wonderful! We really enjoyed the texture differences in the nuts and the chicken, and the flavor was great. I will always use nuts to "bread" my chicken from now one - this is just too good.
This recipe is wonderful. I used cashews instead of walnuts, and my son who hates nuts ate everything on his plate and went back for seconds! Highly recommend this recipe to everyone!
This recipe was great. I susbtituted the walnuts with almonds and pecans. It was absolutly Delish!!!! I plan on trying again on guest this weekend!!!
I just made this for lunch and it was delicious! I substituted 1 cup of fat free half and half for the milk and since I had egg beaters, I used 1/4 cup of those instead of the egg. I also dipped half of the tenders twice in the two mixtures because I had so much left over and they were really crunchy and very good as well. Thanks for the great easy recipe, Dusty!
