Mint Coated Chicken

Recipe for Mint Coated Chicken

Mint is something which is so strong in flavor and aroma. I really enjoy the smell it has and love to combine it with chicken, apart from Spinach. Check the Chicken with Pesto Sauce and Spinach stuffed Chicken. The green color in both of them is awesome.

So, I decided to give a unique twist to the humble chicken breast. Not to just serve it with some sauce but to coat it with mint. Though once cooked it doesnt stay green as it browns but it still carried the mint flavor.

Look at the darkish green coat that the chicken has.

Along with the chicken, I made caramelized onions which tasted amazing and provided that crunch.
As usual chicken was juicy and tender and the mint on the outside really gave a it a different twist.
Let me take you through the recipe now.

  1. Whole Chicken Breast
  2. Salt and Pepper
  3. Oil to cook.
  4. Mint leaves
  5. Bread Crumbs
  6. Dried Rosemary and Parsley
  7. Mayonnaise
  8. Sliced Onions
  9. Half a cup white wine.
  1. First of all, season the chicken nice with salt, pepper and dried Rosemary & Parsley.
  2. Heat oil in the pan.
  3. Cook the chicken from both sides for about 2-4 minutes on medium heat till the time it gets nice color.
  4. Take it off the pan. Don't clean the pan, we will need the leftover juices.
  5. Now add mint leave and little breadcrumbs and run it through the blender till you get coarse mixture.
  6. Coat the chicken breast in this mixture
  7. Bake it in oven for about 10 minutes at 220 degrees C.
  8. While chicken is getting baked, we will make our caramelized onions.
  9. Heat the same pan and add little more oil if required.
  10. Add the onions, add some more dried herbs and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  11. Add little white wine and let it simmer till the alcohol evaporates.
  12. Add 2 table spoons of mayonnaise, mix well and cook for about 30 seconds.
  13. Add salt if required.
  14. Take out the chicken and let it rest for 5 minutes. this will ensure it stays juicy.
  15. Serve it hot.

Simple, ain't it? As you can see most of my recipes are simple and it is another one of them.
