Crispy “Breaded” Chicken

Berna Khoury’s Chicken Recipe:

INGREDIENTS:

500 grams chicken breasts – Maison Chal from Better Life Market 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or coconut milk)
1/4 cup almond meal (can just crush whole almonds in a grinder) 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper, (optional: 1 tsp fresh parsley, 1 tsp garlic / onion powder, 1 tsp smoked paprika), avocado oil, ghee or coconut oil for baking (optional – see tips)

prep time: 10 min, cook time: 30 min, yield: 3 servings

INSTRUCTIONS:

1- Preheat oven to 200°C
2- In 2 separate flat dishes: 1-place the almond milk. 2-place the ground almonds and mix with spices of choice.
3- Pat chicken dry with paper towel and dip and coat each breast in the almond milk first and then in the almond flour / spice mixture.
4- Place on a parchment paper and if necessary drizzle with a bit of avocado oil (see tips)
5- Bake 25 – 30 minutes.

TIPS & VARIATIONS:

– Careful not to over-bake. chicken can easily become dry. Cook time will depend on the thickness of your chicken.
-Can make nuggets or strips / fingers by cutting chicken into desired shapes. Just make sure they have similar sizes so they all cook evenly. – I personally don’t drizzle with oil anymore, because I find the texture to be crispier this way.
– Serve with your favorite homemade sauce, lots of greens and a starchy veggies mash (see index for recipes)
