So, what is Dukkah you ask?  Well, it's a delicious spice blend that is so versatile, you ask yourself why you have done with out this spice for this long...

Dukkah

So my good friend Kecia and I, from Kecia's Flavor Breakthrough went to the farmers market.  We had SO MUCH fun!!  We explored vegetables, herbs, spices and wine...

 
You so knew I was going to say that!!  But we also explored, you know foodie things!  One of them that I screeched to a halt to, was the Dukkah booth.


Ready for this very easy, simple yet delicious recipe?  Here we go!



Prep time: 10 minutes

Bake time: 25-30 minutes
Yield: 8 chicken rolls


Ingredients:  

8 chicken cutlets (thin)
1/3 cup Dukkah, + 1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup flour, + 1/4 tsp salt & 1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup bread crumbs (I used unseasoned - not panko), plus
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, + 1/4 tsp salt & 1/4 tsp pepper, mixed well.

3 tbsp (1/4 cup) olive oil


Directions:
 -Preheat oven to 375F

-As oven is preheating, using three separate pans or plates, add; 
+To the first one add the flour & seasonings, mix well and set aside
+To the 2nd one add the eggs, and beat, set aside
+To the 3rd one, add the crumbs, seasonings, mix and set aside

-In a small bowl add your Dukkah spice mix and add the salt, mix and set aside.  Now we are ready to assemble. 

- Pre-spray a 9X 9 baking pan with non stick spray. 

-On a flat surface, lay out your cutlets and sprinkle your Dukkah seasoning evenly over your cutlets.  Making sure they all get that amazing goodness and all...
You know, making them happy!! What?


- After sprinkling on that amazing seasoning, we are ready to roll these beauties.

-Taking the bottom edge of the cutlet (the one closest to you), roll it into a roll/spiral.

-Dip each one, first into the seasoned flour, then the beaten eggs, and finally into that amazing bread topping!

-Lay into your pan, seam side down and nestle them nice and close.  They love company!

-Drizzle them with the olive oil and bake, uncovered for approximately 25-30 minutes, I like the 30 minutes, I like them nicely golden!!

-Let rest for a just a few minutes and serve with your favorite side.

I love serving this with a nice salad!!  


 While the chicken was baking I sliced up an English cuke, Roma tomatoes, & some green onions w/ parsley.  Olive oil, salt & pepper, were ready to roll!

What you can expect is a crispy, moist bursting with flavor chicken cutlet, that is 50x better than your favorite restaurant!!  Who needs take out, who needs to go out to eat?  Surely not us...
Easy, peasy, family friendly dinner in no time.  Best of all?? Your family will think that you are the best next thing to sliced bread!



Till next time!!
