Take a small scoop of mixture and place underneath each olive oil sprayed chicken breast.  Top with remaining mixture and pat down.  Spray again to coat. 


Bake for 30 minutes .  Scoop chicken off baking stone making sure to get the crispy cheesy goodness surrounding it, cool slightly, then slice the chicken carefully to keep cheese and nuts intact.005
Serve over a mixed green salad with crumbled goat cheese and a drizzle of Tomato Bacon dressing.  OR extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar if you are the healthy sort.

  Enjoy your flavorful and salad!  It’s such a nice change from “the usual”!
