Let's Cook!

For peanut crust: Grind 4 torn slices of bread and 1 cup peanuts in a food processor. Pour into a bowl, then mix in 1 tablespoon oil (recommend olive), 2 teaspoons salt (only if peanuts are unsalted), 1/2 teaspoon each Dijon mustard and pepper. Spread out on a large plate. Separately, beat a generous sprinkle of salt and pepper with 3 eggs in a large bowl.

For chicken: Prepare by removing skin, cutting into strips (remove bone if bought split breasts), and pounding to even thickness of strips.

To bake: Heat oven to 400 degrees. Rub a baking sheet lightly with oil. Coat chicken in egg mixture, then dredge in peanut breading. If needed, press breading onto chicken to adhere better. Bake until lightly browned and cooked through, turning once halfway through. Depending on your chicken thickness, bake about 20-30 minutes total. (Break one strip open to check doneness. You're looking for juicy, all white middles.)

Garlic green beans: Bring a well-salted pot of water to a boil. Separately, prepare ice-cold water in a large bowl. Drop green beans in boiling water and cook 3-4 minutes. (When you see the color of the beans turn a bright, beautiful green, pull them.) Drain beans and immediately immerse in the ice water to stop the cooking process. Hold them in the ice water for the same amount of time they were in the boiling water. Then, sauté in a skillet with 1 tablespoon oil (recommend olive), 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic, and a few dashes each salt and pepper; sauté about 5 minutes, or until hot. Finish with a pat of butter or margarine.

Serve peanut chicken and green beans immediately with a side of fruit.
