A quick-and-easy recipe for chicken that's topped with crunchy peanuts. Try serving it with roasted vegetables like asparagus as shown or even wild rice. 


  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken cutlets (or 3 breasts halved)
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon blackening seasoning
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 roasted peanuts


Step 1

  • Wash and pat dry the room-temperature chicken breasts.

Step 2

  • Combine the olive oil, seasoning, and lemon juice in a bowl. Coat and evenly cover the chicken with the mixture.

Step 3

  • Turn the broiler on high, making sure the top rack is on the highest level.

Step 4

  • On a foil-lined baking sheet, lay down the chicken cutlets.

Step 5

  • Place on the top rack, as close to the heat source as possible, and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side, flipping halfway, until the chicken is cooked through.

Step 6

  • Plate the chicken over greens or just on a plate and sprinkle with the crushed peanuts.
