How to make it

  • Melt butter in microwave in large glass bowl.
  • Add garlic, ,honey, lime juice, salt and pepper and whisk together.
  • Add egg and whisk again.
  • Place all chicken pieces into butter mixture, turning to coat all sides.
  • Let sit while preparing crust.
  • Pulse pistachios in food processor to create a coarse grind.
  • In large zipper style bag combine nuts, breadcrumbs, cayenne, onion, garlic powder, Old Bay, dry mustard, celery powder and pepper. Mix well.
  • After chicken has rested in wash for about 10 minutes(it will get goopy and yucky looking due to the butter cooling, but don't worry :), place a few pieces at a time into zipper bag of coating ingredients and toss to coat.
  • Place in baking dish or deep cookie sheet or cast iron pan(this is what I use :) Continue with remaining pieces. See Photo
  • Bake at 400 for about 20-25 minutes, depending on thickness and size of pieces. Cook until juices run clear and internal temperature is 170. Do not turn chicken while baking.
  • Remove from pan onto wire baking rack and let sit about 5 minutes.

    Very yummy, and crispy, chicken! The only change I made was to use a smoke seasoning salt for the Old Bay. Caiden at every bite, which is not common for him :) Added a little more in the IMI II -----------> Spiced Pistachio Chicken

    And yet another way to abuse the humble chook. I can see I'm going to have to get the boys to pluck a few extra birds next week. Your usual sterling effort, of course. Guess we should remind Mal he's lucky the butter isn't lard. Mal's a good sort and lots of fun but being raised in the big smoke can be tough on a guy. Thanks. RJ

    Pistachio chicken may be common but I've never had it. This sounds like a recipe I have to try.

    This recipe was featured on the main page- congratulations!! It sounds really good, I love pistachios. But gawd, you use a lot of butter in your dishes, don't you? lol Not sure if I'll make this anytime soon, but it's on my list of future endeavors. As always, love the pictures. Awesome!
