Instructions Checklist
  • To make the orange-honey vinaigrette, put oil, vinegar, zest, honey, salt, and black pepper in a small screw-top jar. Cover and shake well.

  • Stir together flour, 1/4 cup dukkah, and cayenne in a shallow dish. Beat together 2 eggs with water in another shallow dish.

  • Cut each chicken breast crosswise into 2 equal pieces. Pound each piece between 2 sheets of plastic wrap to 1/4- inch thickness with the flat side of a meat mallet. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Dip each piece in egg mixture, then dredge in flour mixture to coat.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken; cook, turning once, until no longer pink, 4 to 6 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Wipe out skillet.

  • Crack remaining 4 eggs into the skillet. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon dukkah and 1 pinch salt. Reduce heat to low. Cook until whites are completely set and yolks start to thicken, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Arrange greens on a serving platter; drizzle vinaigrette on top. Top with chicken and eggs.

Cook's Note:

Substitute white wine vinegar for the sherry vinegar if preferred.

Wow. I'm the first one to try to recipe. I did have to make alterations for the Dukkah sauce--I had no hazelnuts and toasted pine nuts instead. I also had trouble grounding the coriander seeds in the blender and did it without. I also had ground cumin and not the seeds. I had no sea salt so I used seasoned salt instead. I thought it was all right though my egg broke when I lifted it from the pan. I've had one cutlet and one egg which was so filing. Read More
