Dukkah (pronounced DOO-kah) is a savory Egyptian blend of dried seeds, herbs, spices and nuts. It's used as a coating for meat or fish or mixed with olive oil and served as a dip – here we use it as a flavorful crust for chicken. Moutabel is a Middle Eastern dip traditionally made with eggplant, though other vegetables can be used. In this version, grated beets and Greek yogurt are combined for a vibrant topping for the chicken.
Thin chicken cutlets are easy to coat in the hazelnut breading, plus they cook in a flash for time-strapped weeknights. If you can’t find four 4-oz cutlets, buy two 8-oz chicken breasts and cut each horizontally into two thin pieces. Use a rolling pin or the bottom of a saucepan to pound the cutlets to an even thickness – just be sure to cover the chicken with plastic wrap first for easy cleanup.
