Honey & Cashew Crusted Chicken
Health Highlights


681 gm Chicken, drumstick
3/4 cup Bread crumbs, seasoned
1/2 cup Cashew nuts, raw (crumbled)
3/4 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 cup All-purpose white flour
1 medium Egg
1 tbsp Honey


Preheat the oven to 375. Place a cookie rack (like the one pictured) in a large roasting pan and mist with cooking spray. Set aside.

Set out three shallow pans. In one, combine the crumbled cashews, breadcrumbs and salt (make sure it’s mixed well to evenly distribute the salt). In another pan, pour out the flour. In the third pan, whisk the egg with the honey.

Dredge each chicken drumstick in the flour, coating well. Then dip into the egg mixture, coating evenly, then into the cashew mixture.

Arrange the drumsticks on the prepared rack in the roasting pan and bake for 45-55 minutes or until a meat thermometer registers 180 degrees.

Serve hot or at room temperature with a side of honey, honey mustard or nothing at all!
