Deliciously Moist Cashew Crusted Chicken

I made this chicken for dinner last night and it was really good.  I wish there were leftovers for lunch today.

2/3 cup raw cashew pieces
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp paprika
1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 egg
4 tblsp butter

First, put the cashew pieces in a food processor with the S-blade in place and grind them to a fine texture.  Dump them out onto a plate and add the salt, pepper and paprika, mixing the whole thing well.  Set aside.

Pound chicken breasts until they're 1/2 inch thick all over.

Break the egg into another plate with a rim around it.  Now, dip each chicken breast into the egg, then into the cashew mixture, coating both sides.

Melt the butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat and add the chicken.  Saute until it's golden brown on both sides and cooked through.
