It's sometimes challenging to get my young kids to eat a healthy chicken meal. Like most kids, they tend to prefer fried chicken nuggets; so when I place a standard grilled chicken breast on their plates, I brace myself for complaints. Having this in mind, I tasked myself with creating a delicious chicken recipe that the whole family will enjoy while still providing nutritional benefits.
This crispy almond crusted chicken uses a splash of extra-virgin olive oil (eliminating the need for butter or peanut oil) and skips the white flour that is standard in most recipes. The end result is a gluten-free, nutty-tasting chicken that's awesome on its own or atop a bed of greens. Feel free to add your favorite veggies, squash, or grains to create a heartier meal.
