Reviews for Pine Nut Chicken
"This recipe has potential. It was basically a chicken schnitzel with a faintly crunchy taste of pine nut. Even the frying didn't toast the pine nuts for them to really make a "Wow!" dish. What I did was add some sliced sundried tomatoes with Italian herbs to the top. Then top that with grated Fontina cheese (could have used Parmesan) and place under the broiler for a minute. Now it's yummy!I may try using roasted red peppers instead of the sundried tomatoes next time. Fresh basil would also be nice under the cheese."
