Herb, walnut , parmesan and lemon Chicken with Marion berry sauce

4 Organic free range chicken breast ( use a mallet and smack um down)

Breading: separate plate/bowl
Pinch of fresh minced rosemary
1 heaping tsp of fresh thyme
5 leaves of sage minced
¼ Cup parmesan cheese finely grated
½ Cup tapioca flour

Grapeseed oil for cooking

Marion Berry sauce

1-2 Tab Red wine vinegar

1-2 Tab Raw honey
¼ tsp salt
1/8 tsp peper
Put ing into food processor or blender and pulse till smooth
P
reheat 350 oven

Take chicken breast and lay between some ceran wrap or in a large gallon baggie and hammer away with a kitchen mallet

Once chicken is thinned, dredge in the flour starter to coat with a thin layer of flour and shake off excess.
Now lay each side of the chicken breasts into the egg/buttermilk bath.
After the egg bath you can lay and flip the chicken so that each side is generously coated in the Breading mixture.
Lay the chicken in a large frying pan with hot (med-high) grapeseed oil. Brown each side of the chicken and set on top of a metal cookie rack cooler that is resting on a cookie sheet and bake for about 25 min or until completely cooked through.

Serve with the marion berry sauce on the side

I also liked the berry sauce on top of greens with gorgonzola and yes, some walnut would be lovely tossed in the mix as well!!
As another option I used the same ingredients and process to make fried zucchini (served with buttermilk lemon pepper ranch)
