Almond Crusted Chicken

Craving Fried Chicken? Today isn’t cheat day!!! Try this healthier alternative.

4 Chicken Breasts

4 large eggs

1 Cup Toasted Almonds (skinless)

1/4 Cup Corn Meal

1 teaspoon Paprika

salt and pepper

2-3 tablespoons robust EVOO

In a food processor add the corn meal, the almonds, the paprika and salt and pepper. Pulse the mixture until all the almonds are almost as fine as the corn meal. You are looking for a flour like consistency. Take this mixture and place on a large platter or plate. Next whip all four eggs int a light hello froth in a deep flat dish like a pie dish.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. First dip the chicken chicken in the egg mixture and drench both sides. Shake the remaining egg wash off. Next dredge the egg washed chicken into the almond mixture fully coating both sides pressing the mixture onto the chicken. Place the pieces in an iron skillet with about 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil (enough to coat the entire bottom of the skillet). Place the iron skillet in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350 F and bake for 15 more minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Use a spatula to remove the chicken from the plan to ensure the crust does not come off the chicken.
