Sunflower Seed Crusted Chicken

h2Chef’s Note:/h2
p I listen. Many of the people that look at my recipes say that they have nut allergies. Some try to keep gluten free. Like me, many like a crunchy crust on otherwise boring chicken or fish. Inspired by a reader that said she used seeds to coat her chicken here is a “crunchy” nut free, gluten free but NOT flavor free recipe. Best of all, it is a flash to make./p
