Macadamia Nut Chicken Breast

Macadamia nuts are wonderful to use and really works with the chicken and ginger.


Serves 4

  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 4 tbsp. dark brown sugar
  • 1  1/2 tbsp. grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup Chardonnay white wine
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1  1/2 cups panko crumbs
  • 1  1/2 cups finely chopped macadamia nuts
  • 1  1/4 cup flour
  • 3 eggs, whipped
  • 3/4 cup good olive oil
  • 3 carrots each person, steamed, some green stem attached


Combine first 5 ingredients and whisk lightly until sugar has dissolved.  Wash chicken with cool water and pat dry.  Place in the marinade for about 1 hour.

Mix the panko crumbs and nuts.  Remove chicken from marinade and pat dry to remove excess liquid.  Dip chicken in the flour, then into the egg white. Now dip in the panko crumbs and nuts, pressing firmly so it sticks to the chicken.  Lighly coat a fry pan with olive oil and saute chicken until fully cooked, but don’t overcook. If you need to, add more oil.

When plating, slice each breast and lay out on the plate. Add steamed carrots (3 each) and be sure to leave about 1 inch of green stem on.

Now watch who will want to lick their fingers, they will do it slyly.

This is truly over the moon to eat.
