Fried Chicken Pistachio

Fried Chicken Pistachio combines two unique flavors to produce a truly quick and simple dish. The entire cooking and preparation time is less than twenty minutes. It doesn't require deep frying, just sauteing in butter for a few minutes. Submitted by David McCarthy, Australia


  • 4 six oz. boneless and skinless breasts of chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 2 oz. milk
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 cups chopped pistachio nuts


To chop the pistachio nuts simply place them on a cutting board and attack them with a sharp knife, or wrap in a towel and beat with a rolling pin. It helps release tension as you do it. Very therepeutic.

Dredge 1 side of chicken in flour, shake off excess. Dip in egg wash (lightly beaten egg and milk). Press into pistachio nuts.

Saute in butter for 2 minutes, nut side down. Turn and cook for 3 or 4 minutes or until done. Add desired sauce.

Serves 4.
