Breaded Chicken (without the bread)

Ready for another favorite recipe of mine? Again, please do not give me credit for these recipes I share with you.  I just tend to frequent a lot of blogs and cookbooks for inspiration and then tweak to my own liking. Most of the tweaking is done to make the recipe easier, because I have zero patience.  Do you love breaded chicken, but want to make it healthier?  Here you go.


Instead of using bread crumbs I used eggsflax seed, almond flour and chia seeds– I use 1 cup of each to mix into a big bowl to cover 4 chicken breasts.  You may need more or less depending on the size of chicken you use.

Now… where it gets fun is you can play around with whatever seasonings you like to mix in.  I personally have this all inclusive italian seasoning I typically use, or even bbq seasonings… but you can really do anything.   I use 3-4 table spoons of the seasonings and mix it in with the rest of the dry ingredients.


Whisk 4-5 eggs in a large bowl

Mix together your almond flour, chia seeds, flaxseeds & choice of seasonings in a large bowl

Dip chicken breast in egg mixture

Then dip chicken breast in bread mixture until fully covered

Repeat for each piece of chicken

Cook for 35-40 minutes at 400 in oven

Put some veggies on the side and BOOM there you have it.   Enjoy!
