Rosemary Granola Crusted Chicken

Rosemary Granola Crusted Chicken

I think it's fair to say that granola and an animal protein seem like an unlikely pairing at first, but trust me on this one. Instead of the traditional breadcrumbs used for coating chicken breasts, I opted to use our rosemary granola to add a more flavorful crunch. The rosemary's savory aroma pairs remarkably with the succulent, baked chicken, with hints of brown butter and sweet honey to bring it all together. 

I was a little surprised at first too, but the granola truly makes a typical chicken breast far more interesting.

Rosemary Granola Crusted Chicken Recipe

Serves 2-4

Ingredients:

  • Two boneless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 oz bag of rosemary granola

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a food processor, pulse the rosemary granola until crushed.

Set up a station of three dishes: one with flour, one with the beaten egg, and one with the crushed granola. Take each chicken breast and dip into the flour, then egg, and coat with the crushed granola. 

Bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes. Serve with sides such as roasted carrots, a dressed salad, or grains.

Sweet Potato, Brown Butter + Bourbon Pie

We made a sweet potato pie with all the warming, autumnal spices of nutmeg, allspice, and cloves. The addition of the browned butter and the bourbon complements the sweet potato with a nutty, butterscotch flavor. I also happened to have a whole bag of buckwheat flour sitting around, waiting to be used, so I just threw that into the pie crust along with some spelt flour. It adds a really delicious, toasted savory flavor to the whole pie, so if you like buckwheat and that toothy whole grain tex...
