2          boneless skinless chicken paillards

3T        Vegetable Oil


1 ea.    ripe avocado, peeled and pitted

¼ C      plain Greek yogurt

1 T       honey

¼ C      chopped fresh herbs (parsley, basil, tarragon, and scallion or a mixture )

            Juice of ½ lemon

            Salt and freshly ground black pepper

PREPARE CHICKEN: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl combine spices and set aside.

Combine flour with ½ of spice mixture. Set aside.

Combine panko and crushed cornflakes in a separate bowl with remaining spice mixture and set aside.

Combine buttermilk and egg in a shallow bowl. Set aside.

Pat chicken dry with paper toweling.  Dip chicken in egg mixture and then dredge in  flour.  Shake off excess and return to egg /buttermilk mixture.  Finally, coat with seasoned panko/cornflake mixture pressing lightly to help crumbs adhere.   Set aside while skillet heats.

Heat oil in oven safe skillet on medium high heat until hot.  Place coated chicken pieces into hot oil and cook for 1 ½ to 2 minutes. Flip chicken and place pan in preheated oven.  Roast for 7-10 minutes until cooked through.

PREPARE GREEN GODDESS DRESSING: Using an immersion blender or food processor, combine 1 avocado, ¼ C plain Greek yogurt, 1 T honey, with ¼ C chopped fresh herbs – I like  basil, parsley, cilantro and scallion. Process until mixture is well combined and smooth but still has visible flecks of herbs.  Add the juice of ½ lemon and salt and black pepper to taste. Chef’s note: to avoid a thin, watery dressing try not to over process.

Assemble sandwich and serve.
