Parmesan Chicken


#1

I found this recipe online from a search for healthy family recipes. I exchanged the bread crumbs for almond flour, and it came out perfectly. One of my sons loved it, and the super picky one actually ate it without much complaint. I wonder what would happen if I used egg or egg white instead of butter. I’m going to try that next.

Preheat oven to 350F/175F.

1/2 cup/125 mL butter, melted

1 tsp/5 mL Worchestershire sauce

1/2 tsp/2 mL garlic powder

1 cup/250 mL dry bread crumbs (almond flour)

1 cup/250 mL grated Parmesan cheese

2 Tbsp/30 mL dried parsley

8 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless

In a shallow bowl, combine the butter, Worchestershire, and garlic powder.
In another shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan, and parsley.
Dip each chicken piece into the butter mixture, then into the crumb mixture.
Place the chicken in a single layer in a baking pan.
Bake for about an hour, or until no longer pink inside.

Good to hear that bread crumbs can be replaced with almond flour.

I’ve always wanted to try fried chicken – almond flour and coconut oil. Mmmm.


#3

Could also replace the bread crumbs with pork rinds (put a bunch in a food processor). This is a pretty good and low carb alternative to a lot of breadings.

Wait…I’m confused…the oven is 375F or 175F?

Haha! I hadn’t noticed that, Grneyes. It’s 350F. I think it was supposed to read 175C. That’s what I get for copying and pasting without proofreading. :slight_smile:

@Chris - I actually make chicken strips with almond flour & coconut oil.

Cut chicken into strips.
If the chicken is too dry, soak it in water for about 10 minutes (you want it to be wet so the almond flour can stick)
Roll in almond flour

Heat coconut oil in pan
place strips in pan, flip after a bit.

I kind of figured it was supposed to be 175C but just wanted to make sure!

Thanks for the idea of almond flour as breading! I made some chicken nuggets with eggbeaters and almond flour, they turned out great.
