Chicken Breasts with Apricot Mustard Sauce


Serves 4

4 cleaned chicken breasts, boned and skinned
1 cup flour
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups pecan pieces, finely chopped
1/4 cup apricot preserves
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon olive oil

Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly cover chicken breasts with flour, then dip in the egg mixture. Remove chicken breasts and place in chopped pecan pieces; press down so pecans adhere.

In a small bowl combine the apricot preserves and the Dijon mustard. Mix well and set aside. In a large frying pan, heat olive oil over medium heat; lightly brown cutlets on both sides, then place in oven for 10 minutes.

Spread the sauce evenly on four plates, slice chicken breasts and place over the sauce and serve.

  1. I made this for shabbos lunch and LOVED this recipe. Just made a couple changes because I was in a HUGE rush and it turned out to be a big hit…
    1. I salt and peppered each side of the chicken cutlets before flouring
    2. Chopped the pecans in a spice grinder until they were mostly crumb-like with a few chunky pieces
    3. Drizzled the sauce on top of the chicken

    • During Passover use matzo crumbs or shredded coconut. During the year use breadcrumbs or cornflake crumbs or a combination. I also like to chop up pretzels and packaged French’s onions (crispy onions) and mix them all together.
