Cookie-Coated Chicken Breast

Introducing our new favorite sweet and savory gourmet recipe: cookie-coated chicken breast!

Recently, our talented team in the test kitchen tried their hand at making a brand new recipe: crusted salmon with sunflower seed cookies. This time, they whipped up a similarly satisfying dish for you to indulge on: cookie-coated chicken breast!

Traditionally, cookie-coated chicken breast doesn’t end up on your dinner plate. Yet while cookies as a breading for chicken seems unusual, it’s a naturally delicious new option! Tag @GracesBestCookies on Facebook and share your recipe results with us!

The Ingredients

Before you get started, let’s make sure you’re prepped with the proper ingredients!

For the chicken:

For the honey mustard:

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp distilled white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper

The Steps

  1. To start, preheat oven to 200C/390F
  2. Second, spread ground cookies on a baking tray, spray with oil (spray vertically to avoid blowing off the tray), then bake for 3 to 5 minutes until light golden. Transfer to your bowl.
  3. Third, place a rack on a baking tray (not required but this helps bake it more evenly).
  4. Then, put the egg, mayo, Dijon, flour, salt and pepper in a bowl and whisk with a fork until combined.
  5. Add the chicken into the Batter and toss to coat.
  6. Next, pick up chicken with tongs and place it into the cookie bowl.
  7. Sprinkle surface with cookie crumbs, then press down to adhere. Transfer onto baking tray. Repeat with remaining chicken.
  8. After that, spray lightly with oil, sprinkle with a touch of salt (optional). Bake 18 minutes or up to 20 minutes if gigantic. Any longer will dry out chicken.
  9. Finally, while chicken is baking, combine honey mustard ingredients and whisk until blended.
  10. Remove chicken from oven and serve immediately, with honey mustard and sprinkle with fresh parsley, if desired.

Sunflower Seed Pancakes

Pump up your breakfast routine with an alternative recipe for sunflower seed pancakes!

Some mornings, having enough time to sit down and enjoy a delicious, hearty breakfast seems like a distant dream. In our fast-food, eat-on-the-go culture, we find ourselves driving to work eating dry cereal in our laps or with stomachs rumbling from having skipped breakfast entirely.

But the only thing that’s worse than not enough time to eat is having plenty of time, but not enough ingredients. In your standard, old-fashioned pancake recipe, you need these essentials: milk, flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, eggs, butter, and toppings like syrup or brown sugar. It may not seem like it takes much. But when you can’t make pancakes for your littles like you promised because you’re out of flour and sugar, their disappointment basically lingers until lunch.

Just-add-water pancake mixes are great as a convenient option, but it’s not as much fun as baking from scratch! And we would know, we bake cookies for a living.

Our recipe for sunflower seed pancakes only requires four ingredients: eggs, bananas, butter, and Grace’s Best Cookies!

Let’s get started:

  • For one pancake, whisk 1 egg into a bowl.
  • Next, take 1/2 of a ripe banana and mash it with a fork into the same bowl. Mix it together until all the bumps are smooth.
  • Crush up 2-3 Grace’s Best Cookies and mix them into the batter.
  • Then, heat a lightly buttered griddle or frying pan over medium high heat and pour in your egg-banana-sunflower-seed batter.
  • Allow each side of the sunflower seed pancakes to sit for 45-60 seconds before flipping.

  • Lastly, crumble an additional 2-3 Grace’s Best Cookies on top of your sunflower seed pancakes for that extra crunch!
  • And if you’re feeling sweet, drizzle on a little bit of syrup or honey!

Grace's Best Cookies sunflower seed pancakes recipe  We promise you’ll be comfortably full after only one or two sunflower seed pancakes. The eggs and bananas pack in the protein and potassium which are sure to keep you feeling full for longer. And you can find Grace’s Best Cookies in select retailers like Whole Foods, Dierbergs Markets, Natural Grocers, or Green Acres Markets, or on our website!
