Method

  1. Make the sauce by blending the first 9 ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Place in a small pot and set aside.
  2. Place the nuts, bread crumbs, salt, pepper and cayenne in a clean food processor. Pulse until combined and the nuts are chopped, but small, visible pieces of them remain. Transfer nut mixture to a wide, shallow dish. Place the flour in a second shallow dish and the egg mixture in a third. 
  3. Coat each chicken breast in the flour, shaking off the excess. Dip in the egg mixture, making sure the chicken is evenly coated. Now set the chicken on the macadamia mixture and coat both sides. 
  4. Heat the oil in a large skillet set over medium heat. When hot, add the chicken and cook 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until nicely coloured and cooked through. While the chicken cooks, pace the sauce on the stove, bring to a simmer and cook 5 minutes. Plate the cooked chicken and serve the sauce alongside for spooning on top.

    Note: Diced in this recipe means to cut 1/4” cubes. Quarter of large pineapple should yield the amount needed for this recipe. If the boneless, chicken breast you bought were very large, 12 oz. or more in size, use just two of them in this recipe. Set each one flat on a work surface, now horizontal cut each breast in half, which will give you the four servings of chicken needed for this recipe.

Serving Suggestions

Because the macadamia nuts make the chicken quite rich tasting, this dish is best served with a light side dish such as a salad.
