Chop cashews (not too finely), put on a plate and set aside.

Rinse chard, spin dry and cut to separate the thick stems.

Step 3/11
Cashew-Crusted Chicken Breast preparation step 3

Cut stems crosswise into very thin strips. Blanch in a pot of boiling salted water just to par-boil, about 2 minutes. Drain and plunge stems into a bowl of ice water. Drain well.

Cut chard leaves into strips, about 2 cm (approximately 3/4 inch) wide.

Step 6/11

Separate egg. (Reserve yolk for another use.) In a small bowl, whisk egg white. Rinse chicken breasts, pat dry and season with salt and pepper.

Step 7/11
Cashew-Crusted Chicken Breast preparation step 7

Dip top of chicken breasts in beaten egg white and then into cashews, pressing firmly to adhere. Place chicken, coated side up, on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven at 200° C (fan: 180°C, gas: level 3) (approximately 400°F) until chicken is cooked through and crust is golden brown, 12-15 minutes.

Step 8/11
