I used the thin cut chicken breasts for this, and the coating was wonderful on them. I did increase the nuts a bit and decreased the breadcrumbs with no problem. Just delicious!! Thanks for sharing!! Made for FYC tag game.

This was a very good coating, I used it to coat Ahi tuna instead of chicken and the combination was delicious. Made for ZWT 8 for The Wild Bunch

Your chicken was a real big heat.
I used chicken breast which I halved horizontally in two pieces.
The nuts gave a special flavor and a crunchy structure, the breast was moist, tender and trough.
Really perfect, thanks for you recipe.
