Honey Nut Chicken

Linda Larsen
This simple coating can be made with any type of salted nuts. The nuts and crisp cereal provide great texture and wonderful flavor. The last time I made Honey Nut Chicken I used chopped salted cashews. It was divine!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: Serves 6


  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3 Tbsp. honey
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped salted peanuts or other salted nuts
  • 1-1/4 cups finely crushed cornflakes
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme leaves
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place chicken breasts between sheets of waxed or parchment paper and pound until about 1/3" thick. Combine butter and honey in shallow pan and mix well. Combine remaining ingredients in another pan. Dip boneless, skinless chicken breasts in butter mixture, then roll in crumb mixture to coat.

Place coated chicken on a wire rack on a jelly roll pan.

Bake for 19-24 minutes until chicken registers 160 degrees F on a meat thermometer. Cover and let stand for a few minutes to let the heat rise and juices distribute, then serve.

Very yummy!, Guest Carrie

I thought this was very good, but the thyme was a little overbearing. I would definitely use less or none at all.
