Rather, they're simple home cooked meals placed on a plate and put in front of a hungry family after a long day of toddler wrangling and working from home, right on arsenic hour. It has to be easy, healthy(ish), something the three of us will all enjoy and preferably not use 18 different pans that I then have to wash up.
I like being a 'Crunchy Mama' and cooking from scratch because I know exactly what is going in to our bodies, but now... well after this recipe I come with added crunch!
Pistachio Dukkah Chicken Schnitzel
Ingredients (serves 2)
- 2 skinless chicken breasts
- 1 piece of bread (I used a country grain mix but it doesn't matter)
- 1/2 cup of Kellogg's All Bran Fibre Toppers (which contains 33% of your daily fibre needs plus 25% of your daily iron, folate and vitamins B1 and B2!)
- 25g of pistachio dukkah
- 1 egg, beaten
- In a food processor (or chop by hand if you don't have one) blitz the bread and Fibre Toppers until they combine in to look like big, crunchy bread crumbs - don't over do it, you want most of the Fibre Toppers to remain whole otherwise you'll loose the crunch!
- Stir the dukkah evenly through the mix and place it all on a large plate (place a bowl of fruit in the background for the extra health benefits)
- Dip your chicken breasts in to the egg and then in to the mix, pressing the crumbs on firmly to coat the entire surface
- Cook for 15 minutes over medium heat in a little extra virgin olive oil, turning once, or until golden brown and crunchy (alternatively you can bake them for 30 minutes, or until golden brown, in a 200C oven).
- Serve with a side salad of mixed lettuce, red onion and beetroot strips, and sprinkle a few extra Fibre Toppers over it for some extra crunch
- Freeze any leftover crumb mixture and use within 3 months
|Putting one piece of chicken on an angle is plating up, yes?|
So, who's coming to dinner at my place?
