One pot wonder: Peanut-crusted chicken with brocollini

Sometimes a one pot wonder doesn’t require a pot, but a simple baking tray and a trusty oven. The delicious peanut and breadcrumb crust encases the chicken leaving it juicy and tender, creating a glorious flavour combination. You can add some roasted sweet potato, quinoa, couscous or load up on the greens for a delicious and light weeknight meal.

Tip: for younger children you can cut the chicken into strips to coat, for a simple hand held finger food.

Nutrition Note: Peanuts, actually a legume rather than a nut, boost the flavour of the crumb as well as providing additional protein, fibre, folate, vitaminE and antioxidants to your family’s meal.

    Can you coat the chicken in advance and refrigerate it?

      Natural yoghurt works well instead of egg.
