We consider ourselves crispy chicken connoisseurs, but even we’ve never had a version like this before. Here, chicken is coated in a mixture of buttery panko, walnuts, and warming spices, then baked until juicy on the inside and crunchy and golden brown on the outside. While that magic happens, potato wedges roast and green beans steam until tender. It’s all paired with a dreamily creamy mustard dipping sauce for a TRULY winning chicken dinner.
Produced in a facility that processes milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybean.
Smoky Cinnamon Paprika Spice
Whole Grain Mustard
Yukon Gold Potatoes
• Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry all produce (except green beans). • Finely chop walnuts (or crush in their bag with a rolling pin or heavy-bottomed pan). Cut potatoes into ½-inch-thick wedges. • Toss potatoes on one side of a baking sheet with a drizzle of oil. Season with half the Cinnamon Paprika Spice (you’ll use the rest in the next step), salt, and pepper. Roast on middle rack for 10 minutes (you’ll add more to the sheet then).
• While potatoes roast, place 2 TBSP butter in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until melted, 30 seconds. • Let butter cool slightly, then stir in walnuts, panko, remaining Cinnamon Paprika Spice, and a pinch of salt and pepper. • In a small bowl, combine mustard, mayonnaise, and sour cream. Season with salt and pepper. • 4 SERVINGS: Use 3 TBSP butter.
• Pat chicken* dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. Once potatoes have roasted 10 minutes, remove sheet from oven. Carefully place chicken on empty side of same sheet. • Evenly spread tops of chicken with a thin layer of mustard sauce (reserve remaining sauce for serving), then mound with walnut crust, pressing firmly to adhere (no need to coat the undersides). • Roast on middle rack until chicken is cooked through, crust is golden brown, and potatoes are tender, 15-20 minutes more.
• Pierce green bean bag with a fork; place bag on a plate. Microwave until tender, 1-2 minutes. Carefully transfer green beans to a second medium bowl; toss with 1 TBSP butter until melted. Season with salt and pepper. • Divide green beans, chicken, and potatoes between plates. Serve with reserved mustard sauce on the side. • 4 SERVINGS: Use 2 TBSP butter. • TIP: No microwave? No problem! Steam the beans in a small, lidded pot with a splash of water until just tender, 5-7 minutes.
