Recipe: Almond Crusted Chicken

Almond Crusted Chicken

1 chicken breast
1 egg
1/2 cup almond meal (or grind blanched almonds)
salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 350. I seasoned the chicken breast with salt and pepper.  This will give the chicken some flavor beneath the almond crust.  Then, whisk your egg in a bowl, and dip your chicken in it; let the excess egg drip off. Then, roll around in the almond meal to get a thorough coat on the chicken.

Heat olive oil in a pan on medium heat, and cook the chicken for about 3-4 minutes per side.  This will help the almond crust stick to the chicken. Throw the chicken in the oven for 20 minutes, and voila! You have a nice juicy piece of "breaded" chicken. And it's Paleo!

For my side dish (carbs), I sauteed some broccoli and spinach in Kerrygold unsalted butter. Next time, I'll cut the raw broccoli into smaller chunks so it cooks more evenly with the spinach.  Enjoy!
