Servings 4


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

2. Place chicken between two sheets of wax paper and flatten with the back of a pot, until a uniform thickness. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Combine almonds, pecans and pistachios with parsley and thyme on a plate.

4. Combine mustard and vinegar and brush one side of chicken with mustard mixture. Set chicken, mustard-side down, into nut mixture. Pat chicken to coat evenly. Brush other side of chicken with mustard mixture. Turn chicken over in nut mixture, patting again. Shake off any excess coating. Place on wax or parchment paper.

5. Heat oil and butter in an ovenproof skillet on medium heat. When sizzling, add chicken breasts and fry until nuts are lightly browned on both sides, about 1 minute per side. Place skillet in oven and bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until juices are clear.

6. While chicken is baking, combine wine and shallots in pot. Bring to boil and reduce by half. Stir in whipping cream and mustard and reduce until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and reheat when needed.

7. Before serving, whisk in lemon juice and butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with chicken.
