I'm still lickin my chops after this one.It's that good. I cut the quantities to a third for one large breast, heated The marinde in a pyrex cup in the microwave,And spread it on the breast with the back of a spoon. Zapped the nuts in a mini-blender and patted them into the goo. Baked it in one of those throwaay pie tins to ease the cleanup.. Juicey, durn near cut-with-a-fork tender and deeelicious!! I normally give a four as my top score reserving the fifth for supriseing me. This one Really deserves that Fifth For ease and convenience. T.

An excellent dish! A very flavorful twist on preparing baked chicken breasts. The meat was moist and tender, with the crunchy coating of nuts outside. I used No sugar added preserves to cut the carbs, and actually substituted almonds for the cashews for the same reason. (I love cashews, but they have 4 times the carb count. If I had used cashews I imagine five stars wouldn't be enough. LOL) Thank you for sharing this recipe.
