Almond Crusted Chicken

So this isn't an original idea, but the first time I tried it and *omg* it was delish.  Even my fiance gave it two thumbs way up.  It was nutty and juicy.  I served it with my healthy Sweet Tater Tots and Kale Chips

Oh and first time pics with my new plates!!!!!!!!! ah super awesomenessssss!


  • about 3 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • 1/2 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp of paprika
  • 1/2 tsp of cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup of almonds
  • 1/3 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1 egg
  • cooking spray

  1. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil and pop a wire cooling rack on it and spray with cooking spray.
  3. Put the nuts, spices, and flour in a food processor and pulse until all chopped up and mixed
  4. In one dish combine the egg and a splash of water.  In another pour the nut/flour mixture.
  5. Dip the chicken in the egg and then the nut/flour mixture.  I did this twice- dipped twice, but that is a personal preference. 
  6. Then lay on the rack or baking sheet and spray with cooking spray.

  7. Cook for about 20-25 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the outside is nice and golden and crusty.
