Dukkah and Blueberry Chicken


Dukkah is delicious. If you have never tasted it – make a plan. There are various recipes and ratios and you can buy ready-made dukkah but it never tastes as good. But trust me on the dukkah – it’s delicious.

This recipe is easy to make and the perfect crowd-pleaser. Eat the chicken as is with the sauce or add to butter couscous, avo, roasted peppers, feta and rocket for a delicious twist.

Dipping Sauce

  • 1 Tin Blueberries in Syrup
  • ¼ Cup Rosemary
  • 1 Cup Boiling Water with Sachet of Liquid Vegetable Stock
  • ½ Cup Lemon Juice
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • ½ Cup White Wine
  • 2 Tsps. Chilli Flakes (Optional)

In a pot, combine all the ingredients, including the tin of blueberries with its syrup and bring to a boil. Then reduce over a medium heat for 20 minutes; stirring until the sauce thickens. Ta-da!

Dukkah

  • 2 Cups Walnuts
  • 1 Cup Almonds
  • 1 Cup Sesame Seeds
  • 30g Coriander Seeds
  • 3 Tbsps. Ground Cumin
  • 2 Tsps. Salt
  • 2 Tbsps. Ground Black Pepper

Toast the walnuts and almonds in a warm pan, until they become fragrant. Now, add the coriander and sesame seeds, the pepper and cumin and toast them with the nuts. Be careful – the smaller seeds burn easily; hence, why you toast them a little later in the game. Remove from heat and place in a food processor. Process the mix until it’s coarse like sand (don’t over blend).

PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER:

  • 6 Chicken Breasts
  • Cultured Milk
  • 2 Tbsps. Oil
  • Dukkah
  • Robertsons Masterblends, Aromatic Roast Potato (Optional)
  • Blueberry Sauce

#1. Cut the chicken into slices and pound them gently with a mallet; add the chicken in a Ziploc bag with cultured milk (for at least six hours or overnight).

#2. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Remove the chicken from the cultured milk (don’t rinse though); generously cover each piece with the dukkah on every side. And then add to an oven tray.

#3 Once all the chicken is ready and set, drizzle a bit of olive oil over each piece. Bake for 10-12 minutes and turnover. Cover the underside with any remaining dukkah and bake for another 10-12 minutes. Season with Robertsons Masterblends, Aromatic Roast Potato.

Yippee, they are now ready to enjoy.
