Easy Peanut Crusted Baked Chicken

The Easy Peanut Crusted Baked Chicken has a crunchy coating and a spicy surprise. I’d serve this with a cold side;  like....cottage cheese, a vinegar based coleslaw or Arroz con Leche. What would you serve it with? Serves 4 Total Time: 55 minutes + marinating time


3 lbs (4) skinless boneless chicken breasts
1 cup (8 oz) plain yogurt
4 tablespoons butter, melted
2 teaspoons dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1-1 1/4 cup ground dry roasted peanuts
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper


Preheat oven to 350F.

Pat dry chicken and place in a plastic ziplock bag. Cover with yogurt and refrigerate overnight. Next day transfer to a cutting board with a sheet of wax paper. In a small bowl combine the butter, thyme and black pepper. Brush this on all sides of the chicken.

In a shallow dish combine the ground peanuts and cayenne pepper. Roll chicken in mixture until covered with peanuts on all side; place on a roasting pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until chicken’s internal temperature reaches 160-165F. Serve immediately with your favorite sides. Easy Peasy!
