Pistachio Chicken with Raspberry Sauce

    40 minutes

    Put a new spin on an old favourite. Serve on a bed of cous cous with raspberry sauce drizzled over the top. This seasoning can be tweaked depending on what you have to hand. Previously, I have used onion and garlic in with it, along with basil.

    Something else. Added some crushed garlic to the mustard mix, just half a teaspoon.  -  13 Jun 2009


    This was an awesome dish. Very easy to prepare and cook, and very very tasty. The flavours were a compliment to one another, and the raspberry sauce can be used in many other recipes. For some reason i cant give it a star rating, but def 5 star!!  -  13 Jun 2009


    Now THIS is good. Im not usually one for sweet with meat but the vinegar toned the raspberry down so it was a flavour - not a sweetener if you know what I mean. I added chopped oregano to the breadcrumb/pistachio mix.  -  13 Nov 2008
