Upgrade your weeknight chicken recipe with a simple but impressive crust with Sugar Plum’s Kettle-Cooked Coffee Stout Cashews. Our roasted cashews have a rich, savory coffee stout flavor that make a mouthwatering crust on a juicy chicken breast. Make a batch of our cheesy mash on the side to complete this easy weeknight dinner.



4 chicken breasts 

1 cup Kettle-Cooked Coffee Stout Cashews, finely chopped 

1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs

1 cup all purpose flour

2 large eggs

2 tsp black pepper  

1 tsp salt

1/4 olive oil

2 lbs baking potatoes

4 tablespoons butter

1 cup milk

1 cup grated gruyere


Chicken Instructions:

  1. Combine cashews and pepper into a blender or food processor until finely chopped. Mix in breadcrumbs and set aside on a plate or in a dish for coating. 
  2. Whisk eggs to create an egg wash.
  3. Lightly coat chicken breast in flour, dip in egg wash, and coat all sides with the cashew mixture.
  4. Heat olive oil in a large skillet or sauté pan over medium-high heat. Place chicken breasts into the pan and cook for 5-7 minutes each side or until crust becomes golden brown.


Cheesy Mash Instructions:

  1. Bring a pot of salted water to boil.
  2. Peel and quarter potatoes. Drop peeled potatoes in the water once boiling and cook for 15 minutes or until tender.
  3. Once cooked, drain potatoes and place in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add 4 tablespoons of butter, 1 cup of milk, and 1 cup of gruyere cheese to your warm potatoes and start mashing.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste.


Serve your crusted chicken and cheesy mash with a side of mixed roasted veggies like asparagus, mushrooms, and Brussels sprouts for a well-rounded meal that the whole family will enjoy!
