Crack eggs into another shallow bowl, whisk together with the english mustard.
Now to coat, dip each chicken piece into into eggs mix, then place in nut mixture until well coated, set aside. Follow with remaining chicken.
Add enough oil to frying pan so bottom is nicely coated, When oil is hot but not smoking, add chicken pieces and cook 5-6 minutes a side, lowering heat when necessary. (Cook in small batches to avoid overcrowded the pan)
