Cashew Crusted Chicken With Spinach

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by ClareVH

The double-dredging helps keep the chicken moist. Do not over-grind the cashews, or you will end up with cashew butter!

This is a delicious new way to make chicken. Your mother would be so happy that you are not letting any of those pan drippings go to waste! Also loved the addition of spinach. Thanks Clare!
